Jason Hill and his wife Ana Ferreira run an Australian business importing food, drink and cooking equipment from Brazil.
Like many companies, their future operations are clouded by the global uncertainty of the coronavirus.
"The warehouse is full and there are more containers arriving so we haven't felt it," she said.
"But I am not sure how we will go for the orders we are placing now because these containers are from orders we placed many months ago.
"We have to keep working and do our best; and hope that in a few months time things will be better and things will be back to normal."
Mr Hill said of most concern for them is the importation of Brazilian barbecues for now-closed local eateries.
"We have had a little bit of a supply problem there. The BBQ factories have been temporarily closed in Brazil because it's not regarded as an essential service so any new orders for commercial barbecues will be delayed.
"We just hope this doesn't go on for too long and we can get the the restaurants open again when this crisis ends and then all the businesses that feed that area of the market can thrive again."
Ports Australia says it will take all necessary measures to keep supply chains running while ensuring the protection of maritime workers.
"From ships arriving to unload at our ports, right through to trucks delivering much needed food and goods to the people stacking shelves at retail shops, an unbroken supply chain is critical for community confidence at this time," a spokesman said.
So far, no port staff member has been diagnosed with COVID-19 - a crucial concern for authorities in keeping trade flowing.
According to Dr Giovanni Di Lieto, from the Monash Business School, there will inevitably be an impact on products.
"I don't think essentials will be missing in Australia, even in the worst case scenario of a long-term lockdown, but having said that we need to consider that imports will be severely impacted," he told SBS News.
The impacts could ripple out and affect the supply of other critical goods like medical products, forcing authorities here to fire-up some neglected local industries.
"The silver lining will be that some new opportunities will arise in manufacturing industries that were once abandoned in Australia," Dr Di Lieto said.
As panic buying finally shows signs of abating in our supermarket aisles, Australians have been told they have nothing to fear when it comes to the supply of fresh produce.
But AusVeg communications manager Shaun Lindhe said he anticipates there could be short-term price hikes until supplies reach a level where they fully meet demand.
"We grow a vast majority of our fresh produce in many different growing regions so we are very fortunate that we are not at risk of running out of fresh produce," he said.
