We recognise the extraordinary situation the food & drink sector finds itself in during the current coronavirus crisis.

With the situation evolving all the time, it can be hard to keep up with changes and we are talking to those in the industry about their concerns around topics such as:

  • What contractual options do we have where our supply chain is unable to meet the demand from our customers?
  • How do I deal with my staffing issues with a drop in business? How does the Government’s Job Retention (furlough) Scheme work?
  • What are the HR implications for essential workers providing to the F&D sector?
  • Should I continue to pay rent/service charge under the lease of my premises? Am I protected from having my lease terminated if I am unable to pay rent?
  • Who and what are caught by the new regulations relating to Coronavirus and what are the possible sanctions for non-compliance?
  • Payment issues: How do I keep getting paid; can I stop paying?
  • UK government support schemes for COVID-19 – What is available and am I eligible?

Listen to our food & drink experts address these issues.
