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.

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.
