Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue is reassuring consumers that the U.S. food supply chain is sound despite the COVID-19 situation.

“It’s is a very complex supply chain but, fortunately, it’s sound. It’s stable,” Perdue says. “I think after the demand surge we saw a couple of weeks ago, we’re seeing shelves replenished. I think that gives people a sense of calm when they go in the grocery stores and see the replenishment there. So things are working very well there, from the farm to the fork.”

In an interview with Fox Business News, Perdue also talked about the dedication of farmers and others in the food supply chain.

“These people are coming to work while many people are telecommuting. They’re providing inputs. The farmers and ranchers who grow the food are there. Those who process that food are there. They’re the real heroes, just like your health professionals—coming to work every day, getting the job done, and filling those grocery shelves.”
