It is innocuous to say that this downturn would also negatively impact agriculture. Raw material prices for processing tempeh have fallen since COVID-19 measures have been put in place across the globe. These fraction falloffs are based on a comparison of current future contract levels to projected prices.

As the COVID-19 virus lashes across the world, each phase along the agriculture industry supply chain is stepping up to keep employees and consumers safe, while still providing vital equipment, services, commodities, feed, and food. Food processing companies are facing significantly reduced consumption and supply chain disruption challenges. All major countries around the globe had announced total lockdowns to counter the COVID 19 pandemic. Thus, the production of tempeh was affected due to a shortage of raw material and lack of manpower in the second quarter of 2020. Some sort of resumption of operations have led to stabilization in production.
