COVID-19 Resources

As we each look to recover from the impacts of COVID-19 and prepare for potentially similar outbreaks in the future, there are many questions around the risks associated with food production and to our employees to ensure that a safe and robust food supply is maintained for the public. Below you can find useful links to expert resources to help address your questions.

COVID-19 Modeling

The COVID-19 pandemic has rocked the US food supply. In particular, the labor-intensive food processing and produce growing companies have been hit hard demonstrating how sensitive these parts of the supply chain are to disruptions like this pandemic. To improve resilience of the food supply chain to COVID-19 and to support operational decisions of food companies in terms of optimal COVID-19 mitigation strategies, we have developed a simulation-based decision support tool called “Find CoV Control.”
