Protecting our industry, community and staff

The department is liaising with and gathering intelligence from key stakeholders involved in WA’s primary production and food supply chain, including Regional Development Commissions, State Government agencies, peak industry bodies and the food processing sector to:

  • prepare WA businesses
  • support business continuity measures
  • reduce potential impacts of COVID-19
  • plan for a return to business as usual once the crisis has passed.

In order to protect the health and wellbeing of our staff, DPIRD is adopting State and Federal health recommendations with respect to social distancing and good hygiene. We are also putting plans in place to ensure our business continuity.
