Food and drink manufacturers are being asked to establish Asymptomatic Testing Sites in workplaces on a voluntary basis, which will provide confidence to employees and customers and help to protect and enable business continuity. Government is inviting businesses in the food sector with more than 50 employees (with sites located in England) to register for the provision of government-funded lateral flow technology (LFT) to test asymptomatic workers. For more information, please visit: https://www.gov.uk/get-workplace-coronavirus-tests.
FDF is jointly hosting a webinar on workforce testing with the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) on Monday 15 February at 15:00 to provide an opportunity to hear from government and industry on how to access and implement workforce testing effectively.
