Since the pandemic, economic recovery around the world has been stilted as global supply chains have been disrupted by factory closures, fractured transport networks, labour disruptions and rising energy prices.

The pandemic along with supply chain strains, climatic events and converging disruptions have also sent food prices soaring.

Meanwhile, Russia’s invasion of Ukraine, one of the world’s six breadbasket regions, is fuelling a global food crisis.
