Sysco temporarily drops sales of fresh seafood

American wholesaler Sysco is infected by the closing of the hospitality sector and therefore develops new tactics to survive. 

The giant American food supplier is giving up selling both fresh meat and seafood, states the New York Post.

According to the Post, customers have been giving a memo by Sysco to be informed about the use of frozen foods instead of fresh. Shannon Mutchler, a spokesperson from Sysco has declined to comment on this matter.

Sysco is afraid of bringing to much fresh food to their customers, as the demand is down, states the New York Post.

The company is finding it difficult to distribute enough products already and is searching for new customers to provide for.

Chief Executive Kevin Hourican earlier this month informed Sysco is looking to pivot toward serving supermarkets while many of its clients, restaurants and hotels, remain shut down.
