With snacks manufacturing being a major end use, disrupted production is likely to reduce the demand for roasted corn. Furthermore, restrictions on travel are disordering the supply chain and trade movement of agriculture and food commodities, thereby resulting in the spoilage of perishables, increasing food and agriculture waste, and hampering the growth of the roasted corn market.
