With our growers and packers facing a lot of unknowns in light of the COVID-19 crisis, Faith, with the help of others, has created a 2-page resource for the Washington produce industry. The document can be downloaded here as well as from Faith’s website.
We understand the Washington produce industry is facing many challenges in light of the COVID-19 outbreak. We have collected some information from the WSDA, FDA, WDOH and CDC that may be helpful to growers and packers.
This information serves as a resource to help you gather information and stay informed on COVID-19 related information. Resources linked in the sidebar were used to compile this information, and each can provide helpful information for farms and packinghouses as they evaluate their current operations.
