Policy responses

For processing facilities with larger numbers of employees, have well-developed preparedness protocols in place for early containment with associated training programs and storage/less labor intensive technology options available, which would allow these processors to shift to emergency mode production (e.g., physical distancing on the processing floor) efficiently and with minimum disturbance in output delivery – we can help such firms to develop these protocols. Always adapt to the context, best practices in one place may not be appropriate in another.
