With increased pressure on the food supply chain in Wales during the COVID-19 outbreak, Food Innovation Wales has opened helplines in each of its geographic areas to support Welsh food and drink manufacturers.

Companies can contact the helplines for advice and support with food safety, technical issues or guidance on supply chain continuity (e.g. raw material supplies).

Food Innovation Wales, backed by Welsh Government, is based at three food centres across Wales. The team of industry experts can help manufacturers of all sizes navigate their way through a range of complex technical and commercial issues.

Professor David Lloyd, Food Innovation Wales, said:

“This is a challenging time for food and drink manufacturers in Wales with increasing demands on factories, the workforce and supply chain. Food Innovation Wales, with our technical and commercial expertise, are on hand to provide a range of support and guidance.”
