FCPC releases COVID-19 Operations Best Practices for Industry

With record demand for things like staple foods, toilet paper, disinfectants, and more, it’s critically important that manufacturers plan for how to maintain operations with the highest standards and mitigate the impacts of COVID-19 on the 300,000 people and 6500 facilities that make the essential goods all Canadians rely on.

Food and Consumer Products Canada is sharing newly-developed best practices with federal and provincial authorities managing the COVID-19 response, as well as with businesses and associations throughout the agriculture, food, and consumer goods manufacturing industries. The guidelines serve as a resource for businesses of all sizes and to inform both government and the public of the steps businesses are taking to uphold the most rigorous hygiene and sanitation standards and implement new protocols for preventing the spread of COVID-19.

These best practices are a practical tool for food and consumer goods manufacturers to achieve our top priorities: keeping employees, products, and facilities safe and healthy while ensuring a steady supply of the essential food and consumer products Canadians are relying on, now more than ever.
