The presentation

Although it is highly unlikely that people can contract Covid-19 from food or food packaging, the coronavirus pandemic has had a significant impact on the food supply chain from production through to retail. This has increased the risks to the health and safety of consumers.

This presentation will consider the impact of Covid-19 on:

  • The law relating to food safety and hygiene;
  • Food information, labelling and claims;
  • Increased opportunities for food fraud and other criminal activity;
  • Non-compliance and enforcement
