Food business advice during coronavirus

Following on from the recent reopening of all food businesses in England and following a significant period of closure there are several extra checks as well as normal daily checks that food businesses will need to attend to before and during operation. The Government have issued updated guidance for all workplaces involved in the manufacturing, processing, warehousing, picking, packaging, retailing and service of food [external link].

The Food Standards Agency have also issued guidance [external link] for food businesses looking to operate during the COVID-19 pandemic.

We understand that businesses may look to change their business model and diversify in order to maintain their business during this time.

Advice is now available for those businesses that are looking to offer takeaways and delivery services where they have not done so before.
