A cookie is a small and flat baked food prepared as ready-to-eat product. They are prepared from flour, sugar, oil or fat, and other optional ingredients. Cookies have been considered as important bakery treats from ancient times. They were introduced by Persians in 17 A.D. and the word cookie originated from Keokje word in Dutch which means little cake. New product development and technological advancements led to the commercial production of cookies, also referred to as biscuits in some countries. Cookies are prepared in various shapes and sizes along with additional ingredients such as resins, oats, chocolate chips, nuts, and other flavorings to enhance palatability. The chocolate chip cookie was first invented by Ruth Wakefield in 1938 in America. Cookies are highly consumed snack products in the U.S., the UK, Italy, and India. They are categorized as bar cookies, drop cookies, filled cookies, molded cookies, no-bake cookies, pressed cookies, refrigerator cookies, rolled cookies, sandwich cookies, low-fat cookies, and others. Cookies are baked at the household level and large scale in bakeries.

  • The export and import ban imposed in several countries led to the disruption of the global supply chain of the cookies market.

Supermarkets and retail stores faced a shortage of the product due to initial panic buying and later due to the shutdown. The demand for cookies increased, whereas the supply was not able to meet the requirements.
