Canadian Food System Withstood Pandemic Challenge, FARE faculty finds

A recent article in the Western Producer pointed to the findings of FARE faculty Brady J. Deaton jr. and his father Brady J. Deaton of the University of Missouri that “the evidence from price data does not indicate a failure in the capacity of the Canadian food system to adapt to COVID-19. Indeed, as we predicted, rapid upswings in the general price of food appear to have been avoided.”


The two had recently published an article in a special issue of the Canadian Journal of Agricultural Economics on Agriculture After A Year With COVID-19.
