Join John Allan, CBI President and Chairman of Tesco and other industry peers in an online meeting to discuss how the food and drink supply chain is responding to the COVID-19 outbreak.

John will share expert intelligence from his daily conversations with government and discuss how Tesco has been managing challenges and responding to the outbreak.

A member of the CBI’s campaigns team will also update participants on how the CBI has been working with the government to protect the interests of business and employees since the onset of the outbreak.

There will be an opportunity for all attendees to ask John questions and hear from other food and drink businesses on how they have been managing challenges. Key issues that will be discussed on the meeting include:

  • How food and drink businesses are managing labour challenges and availability

  • The impact of COVID-19 on demand

  • How COVID-19 is affecting the food and drink supply chain.

The meeting will be chaired by Karl Tucker, Executive Chairman of Yeo Valley Farms.
