As the world continues to grapple with the implications of the COVID-19, the INC reached out to various members of the leadership, to interview and gain their perspective of how the nut and dried fruit industry has been affected by the pandemic.

One of the most repeated answers among the leadership was that the nut and dried fruit industry most certainly has faced numerous challenges with COVID-19, however there are many reasons to be optimistic for the future. Behrooz Agah, from the Agah Group in Iran and an INC Ambassador to Iran commented, "promotion and increased awareness as to the benefits of consumption of different products in this section on general health and well-being" is likely to be of increased importance in the aftermath of COVID-19. Likewise, in China, Chen Qi, from QiaQia Food and a member of the INC Board of Trustees noted, "because of consumers growing demand for staying healthy, this industry will accelerate in China."

Pratap Nair, from Vijayalaxmi Cashew Company in India and member of the INC Executive Committee stated, "I am certain our strong and resilient industry will have the strength to overcome this challenge."

Similarly, Jan Vincent Rieckmann from August Toepfer in Germany and Roby Danon from Voicevale in the UK, both members of the INC Board of Trustees, expressed their confidence in the industry, especially in the future.
