Among the positive effects of the Green Pass and the advancement of the vaccination campaign, there is also the recovery of some sectors. Among these is that of food production.
In August, according to the data provided by Coldiretti, with the reopening of the restaurant, there was a jump of 5.1% compared to the same period of the previous year.
After the long period of lockdown, there has been a big return in food consumption outside the home. An important change after last year catering was among the sectors most affected by the pandemic with the food consumption of Italians outside the home which had fallen to a minimum for at least a decade.
Suffice it to say that the turnover of bars, restaurants, trattorias and agritourisms had even halved (-48%) with an overall loss of almost 41 billion euros in 2020.
To support the industrial production of food – concludes Coldiretti – is also the historical record set for Made in Italy food exports which in July jumped by 4.9%, for an annual value estimated at over 50 billion in 2021.
