Supply chain problems related to COVID-19? Let us know.

UPDATE: Please continue to share your supply chain issues with CRN—our contacts at USDA and FEMA have asked that CRN keep then apprised of challenges and even long-term concerns that companies may be facing.

CRN Members:  If you are having supply chain problems related to COVID-19, we want to hear about them. CRN has been contacted by U.S. Secretary of Agriculture Sonny Purdue’s office and asked to provide USDA with issues we are learning about with respect to supply chain disruptions related to coronavirus. USDA is interested in both your domestic and international supply chain issues. If you are having difficulties with receiving raw ingredients, excipients, packaging materials, etc., please let CRN know so we can gather these concerns and relate them to USDA. The USDA officials reiterated their commitment to help solve these issues.

If you have supply chain disruption matters you would like to share, please send a brief summary either to Dr. Jim Griffiths ( or to me ( If you would prefer your company’s name not be disclosed to USDA, please indicate that and we will honor that anonymity when providing summaries to USDA.

CRN is here for you and we want to help our members through this difficult time. Please don’t hesitate to contact us with issues of concern. Be well.
