The accommodation and food and drink supply sector is one of the sectors that has been heavily impacted by COVID-19, especially hospitality. Restrictions on physical interaction since the pandemic have resulted in restrictions on the number of visits to hotels and restaurants as well as the temporary suspension of the construction of new hotels and restaurants.
Currently, the accommodation and food and drink supply sector is focused on surviving the pandemic. There are several adjustments made by business actors. Some hotels have turned into offices, warehouses, or rental places for tenants to sell. Then, restaurants that are able to provide take away services are able to survive the pandemic. There seems to be a new trend in the culinary world, namely catering for healthy food and herbs in ready-to-drink bottles.
