Meat supply chain in full operation in Victoria

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews has announced the removal of workforce caps for meat processing facilities, as part of a widespread relaxation of restrictions in the city.

Under the statewide position from 11.59pm on November 8, further meat, poultry and seafood processing restrictions were eased in Victoria.

Under the current statewide restrictions for the Third Step of Victoria’s roadmap to reopening, workforce caps have been removed for meat, poultry and seafood processing, whilst all other COVIDSafe requirements remain.

Meat, poultry and seafood processing now joins the same COVIDSafe position as warehousing and distribution centres and supermarket or perishable food work premises that is a chilled distribution facility.

Seasonal horticulture has also eased restrictions with the Premier removing the requirements relating specifically to workers who live in metropolitan Melbourne or who commute between the metropolitan Melbourne and regional Victoria, now that settings are state-wide.

The last step of Victoria’s roadmap to reopening will commence from 11:59PM on 22nd November.
