Food production and supply is considered an essential service in Australia and New Zealand. We are working with the Department of Health, the Department of Agriculture, Water and the Environment, state and territory health authorities, and international counterparts to ensure the most up to date information is available on our website for consumers, those working in the food industry, and charities, groups and volunteers donating food. For the latest news on COVID-19 see the Australian Government Department of Health website.
