We’ve heard from many of you in our community that it can be difficult to find the best resources and expertise to support you, your staff and your business during this uncertain time for our industry.  

To help you stay informed, we have compiled a list of reliable resources that will support you to understand the situation in your country and take relevant action to protect yourself and others.

Wondering how to keep safe?

WHO has all the latest information and advice on protecting yourself and others from Coronavirus including personal hygiene initiatives, ways of managing stress during the outbreak, best practice for food safety and tips on how to stay well whilst travelling.

Additionally, here is the Coronavirus Guide for the F&B Industry by The World Association of Chefs’ Societies. This guide is specifically written to help people in the F&B industry reduce the risk of their businesses accidentally spreading Coronavirus (aka Covid-19). The suggestions here are low/no-cost and are generally good practice—they have also been evaluated by epidemiologists, public health experts, biologists, and doctors
