Living and Learning with COVID-19

April 3, 2020

By Kathy Chiao, Marketing Specialist

As we continue to confront the daily challenges of living a society affected by COVID-19, we are constantly looking for effective and creative methods to allow us to live our lives. This includes being able to remain in contact and develop ourselves socially and professionally.

Our commitment has, and always will be, to the health and safety of our stakeholders and the global population. However, we recognize that those in our industry must remain sharp and prepared in order to protect the global food supply. This means an uninterrupted access to continuous food safety education. In order to maintain your health and safety, we will follow the examples of education institutions all over the world and explore the capabilities of virtual or e-learning classrooms. In the meantime, we urge our community to stay engaged and to continue your food safety education through various online trainings.
