The coronavirus pandemic has forced us to rethink supply chains as we shift our focus towards virus prevention among farmworkers, food supply continuity, and resiliency. In the agriculture sector, the full scope of the challenges and the potential for long-lasting repercussions are emerging. With food production being essential business, both growers and food retailers need to prepare for new risks and ensure farmworkers are protected.

We invite you to register for our upcoming webinar with Equitable Food Initiative (EFI) on 21 April where we will discuss some of these industry questions:

  • ​​​​​​What effective actions can growers take to protect their farmworkers?
  • How best to estimate your business’ risk level of exposure?
  • How can brands and retailers support their agricultural suppliers?
  • What is the risk of having insufficient farmworkers to pick crops?
  • How does COVID-19 impact farmworker communities and migration constraints?

The 21 April webinar will explore these challenges while striking a balance between worker safety and food retailer fulfillment rates. Join guest speakers, Meghan Quinlan, Vice President, ELEVATE and Peter O’Driscoll, Executive Director of EFI who will share insights from their experiences in building sustainable food supply chains with safer work environments for farmworkers.
