How Covid-19 is affecting you – the consumer

Short interviews with a European panel of consumers for their thoughts on the impact of Covid-19 on the food system

In this video, you’ll meet a group of consumers and hear how Covid-19 is affecting them and the implications it has on the food on their plates, as well as their views on the main challenges posed by Covid-19 for the agri-food chain in the country they are living in.

Please note that due to Covid-19, all our video contributors had to self-record themselves using a laptop or smartphone. As a result, the audio quality is not optimal. We apologise for the inconvenience. Should you want to better understand the video content, we have provided the English audio transcript in the downloads section below .

Once you’ve heard from our volunteers, we would like to know what you consider as being the main threat to the food system in a time of crisis ? And what are the mitigations measures you witnessed in your Country / Region / Locality ?
