As members will be aware, for some time now the BFFF have been active members of the Defra led Food Chain Emergency Liaison Group (FCELG).
Our next meeting, which is due to take place on 21st September, will be focussing on Power Resilience.
To facilitate the discussions, Defra would like your input and have asked members to answer the following questions:
- In the event of a 5–7day power supply outage in the UK, how well would your business cope?
- What mitigating steps have you put in place to deal with such an occurrence?
Any information you can provide would be gratefully received. Please send to firstname.lastname@example.org by close of play 20th September.
Of course, all information will be treated in confidence and anonymised before feeding back into Defra.
