A message to Queensland's production and processing businesses

As General Manager of Safe Food Production Queensland, given the difficult situation that we have found ourselves in this week, I can take great pride in our production and processing businesses, along with our own staff, in regards to how they have stood up and responded during this challenging time.

I recognise that many businesses still have a lot of work to do but it is encouraging to see businesses taking proactive measures and contacting Safe Food for assistance and advice when needed. It is great to see everyone taking responsibility for the food safety aspects of their businesses.

Please remember that Safe Food is here to assist where possible, and if anyone is having difficulty with the disposal of spoiled product or any other urgent matters, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Finally, to all businesses involved in the processing and production of food in Queensland, Safe Food and the staff extend a big thanks to those businesses during this time and again encourage those who need help to give us a yell.

Regards,
Phil Pond
General Manager
