Food and grocery forum to protect food supply in a crisis

Councils are being made aware of the Food and Grocery Sector Group (FGSG) which covers food safety and security during times of crisis or disaster.

The FGSG consists of Australia’s food, grocery and beverage industry associations involved in the nation’s food supply chain – from paddock to plate.  It also includes key state and federal government representatives.

Importantly, the forum can work closely with local governments during a crisis to ensure the continuity of food supply and safeguard local communities’ ability to access food, beverages and groceries.

Having a strong and effective industry-government partnership is central to achieving food security and supply chain resilience in Australia.
