Public Health England have published their advice to food businesses for dealing with coronavirus. Transmission via food is very unlikely and the risk associated with food packaging is also very low.

We will obviously not be selling at fairs or markets until government advice changes and these events resume. However we will continue to sell online. Local deliveries will be made in person, following similar safe distancing procedures to those used by Royal Mail and courier companies. Deliveries further afield will be by Royal Mail First Class post as usual. Royal Mail’s advice on Corona is linked below, but deliveries via past are considered low risk as long as standard cleanliness and safe distancing measures are followed.
