New initiative aims to help region’s businesses adapt
TO HELP the community through the COVID-19 pandemic, South Burnett Regional Council has introduced new initiatives to aid local businesses.
Government restrictions forced onto mainstream food service businesses, mean cafes, restaurants and bakeries have had to diversify their services, and many are looking at adopting a delivery service model.
In addition to national food laws, the pandemic has added further need for vigilance.
To help, the council has released the following food safety videos to support business owners by informing them about safe food practices they need to be aware of while diversifying the way in which they do business.
A council representative said staff would continue to work within a risk management framework to provide services to the community.
They urged all residents to join then in ‘flattening the curve’ by ensuring hygiene practices were in place and minimising contact where possible.
