Wholesale markets: action against COVID-19

The FAO Regional Office for Latin America and the Caribbean and FLAMA will establish a joint strategy to monitor and advertise the activities of regional wholesale markets and supply centres during this period of crisis due to COVID-19 pandemic. The purpose of this newsletter is to periodically share the main prevention strategies adopted by the wholesale markets and report on their activities and operating conditions to guarantee the food supply since they continue to fulfill their strategic and critical role in the food supply of cities. By delivering objective information and electronic links, we hope that this document can contribute to jointly face and overcome the enormous challenges that lie ahead. The information gathered presents the official initiatives developed by wholesale markets, governments, interest organizations and productive and commercial associations in different locations, and must be evaluated together with the competent national authorities.
