FOOD MATRIX: COVID-19 SUPPORT LINKS

With the COVID-19 situation unfolding daily, it’s important to stay up-to-date with the latest information from relevant health bodies along with industry organisations within the food and agribusiness sector.

There are a number of resources available to assist your business, suppliers and consumers throughout this time. The key site which links the state health departments and assistance packages is the national health department site. Individual star sites have information relevant to each state and links to assistance available in each state or territory. Under food and agribusiness are listed a number of sites with information on consumer handling, packaging and plant care.

Should you have specific questions not answered, please advise us and we will attempt to have relevant experts answer them or refer you to places these are addressed. Please register to the FOOD MATRIX to ask a question.
