NGFA provides new COVID-19 resources

(Posted on 06/04/20)

The National Grain and Feed Association (NGFA) in the USA has made several resources available intended to assist grain, feed, processing and export companies navigate the uncertainties of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), including a recording of NGFA’s April 2 webinar presented in partnership with Grain Journal.

During the “Grain, Feed, Processing and Export Industry Update on COVID-19” webinar, more than 700 attendees joined as NGFA staff provided a detailed look at what the designation of food and agriculture as critical infrastructure means, and highlighted several agency-specific operations, including Federal Grain Inspection Service (FGIS) continuity plans, U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) inspections during the pandemic, updated truck weight and hours-of-service regulations and commercial drivers’ license policies, contracting and arbitration issues, and the current and future financial relief enacted or planned by Congress. Staff also spent 30 minutes of the webinar taking questions from attendees, and will plan to follow-up on with individual attendees that didn’t have time to get their questions answered during the presentation.

A new NGFA Safety Tips Sheet: Coronavirus Disease 2019, which focuses on reducing industry impact of COVID-19 by developing continuity of operations plans.

A sample letter of access for essential critical infrastructure workers that grain, feed and processing companies can use for their employees.

NGFA, established in 1896, consists of more than 1,000 grain, feed, processing, exporting and other grain-related companies that operate more than 7,000 facilities and handle more than 70 percent of all U.S. grains and oilseeds.
