What is the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry?

While wanting to protect the country from being overwhelmed by Omicron, China’s adherence to a Zero-COVID policy is resulting in a significant economic downturn. COVID outbreaks in Shanghai, Beijing and many other Chinese cities will impact 2022’s economic growth as consumers and businesses experience rolling lockdowns, leading to a slowdown in domestic and international supply chains. China’s Zero-COVID policy is having a demonstrable impact on consumer-facing industries. Access GlobalData’s new whitepaper, China in 2022: the impact of China’s Zero-COVID lockdowns on economic activity, consumer goods and the foodservice industry, to examine the current situation in Shanghai and other cities in China, to better understand the worst-affected industry sectors, foodservice in particular, and to explore potential growth opportunities as China recovers. The white paper covers:
  • Which multinational companies have been affected?
  • What is the effect of lockdowns on foodservice?
  • What is the effect of lockdowns on Chinese ports?
  • Spotlight on Shanghai: what is the situation there?
  • How have Chinese consumers reacted?
  • How might the Chinese government react?
  • What are the potential growth opportunities?

The field service engineers are classed as essential workers and are visiting sites in order to fix breakdowns.

The Swanline visors are made from the company’s Cygnus Eco Board and was developed alongside NHS consultants. They are eco-friendly and available in plain white or an NHS rainbow design.

According to Swanline, the visors feature an adjustable headband, are spectacle-friendly, and provide a good field of vision and eye protection above the eye line.

Bobst UK & Ireland technical service manager Allan Pinfold said: ““Whilst site visits are being kept to an absolute minimum at present in order to respect the government directives and help prevent spread of the virus, only attending where there are no other means of supporting our customers, these visors are providing extra protection to both Bobst employees and our customers. We are extremely thankful to Swanline for designing and developing this equipment for us.”

Swanline Paper & Board managing director Ross Griffin said: “Working in collaboration with NHS professionals, we have developed the face shields for use by health workers in care homes, as well as any other sector where employees need to be protected in the course of their work.”
