COVID-19 and the Food Processing Industry
CLFP is in regular contact with government agencies, industry and association coalitions regarding COVID-19 and its impact on the state's food processing industry and is providing regularly briefings for its members. The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) Food and Drug Branch has compiled links to resources to assist the food industry during COVID-19. CDPH also has published a checklist for employers experiencing an outbreak of COVID-19 in the workplace.
Additional COVID-19 information also is available on our Member Resources page.
COVID-19 has created challenging times for many people trying to find food and other supplies.
