FMI Presents Covid-19 Preparedness Planning Resources To Its Members

FMI Covid-19 planning

FMI–The Food Industry Association has released new materials for its members in order to assist the food industry’s preparedness planning for Covid-19, commonly known as coronavirus. 

FMI developed a “Coronavirus Preparedness Checklist” and Coronavirus and Pandemic Preparedness for the Food Industry guide. FMI also has compiled background information on a dedicated website to support planning and communications efforts.

FMI understands that a pandemic, if it develops, will necessitate engagement across a host of areas including health care, store operations, supply chain, food safety, workforce, emergency management and media. The organization says it wants to make its members aware of FMI resources available around crisis planning, and the steps it is taking to ensure the food supply chain is actively engaged with key government agencies. 

FMI has scheduled a a webinar—Covid-19 Preparedness with CDC—for 3 p.m. ET Tuesday, March 10, featuring guest speaker Dr. Ian Williams with the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), the lead agency for the federal government overseeing the planning and response to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) and the virus causing the disease, SARS-CoV-2.

Join the webinar to:

• Get an overview and current status of the virus;

• Hear what the CDC is doing in response to the outbreak; and

• Learn what CDC’s current recommendations are for retail, wholesale and the food industry as a whole.

As the food industry association, FMI works with and on behalf of the entire industry to advance a safer, healthier and more efficient consumer food supply chain. FMI brings together a wide range of members across the value chain—from retailers that sell to consumers, to producers that supply food and other products, as well as the wide variety of companies providing critical services—to amplify the collective work of the industry.
