A note from BFFF CEO Richard Harrow – A dedicated Covid-19 section has been added to our website where you can stay up-to-date with the latest news, updates and government guidelines and restrictions. Plus, information about the work the Federation has launched to help support you. These initatives include:

Spare Worker Availability Portal
Working with the Association of Labour Providers we are promoting the Spare Worker Availability Portal (SWAP). SWAP is a free tool which allows organisations to post available workers and be contacted by GLAA licensed ALP labour providers who have work for them so that businesses needing extra staff can find the workers they need. Again, register on our website.
You can find answers to a number of COVID-19 related questions recently posed to us. The BFFF team is actively seeking information from both government and non-government sources to assist members with their queries and concerns.
PR and Lobbying Campaign
We are engaging with the Government directly and in conjuntion with partners such as the FDF, to represent the industry’s interests. Plus, our PR Team is promoting BFFF initatives to the media and engaging with consumers across a range of social media platforms to promote frozen food.
As ever we are here to support our members.
