Support Services


  • 25/03/2020

From bushfires to floods, coronavirus to global market meltdowns – to say that 2020 has been challenging is an understatement.  Now more so than ever, it is critical for our industry to come together.

With the situation unfolding daily, the FIAL team are adapting to provide initiatives to support Australia’s food and agribusiness sector. Individually, we must all be mindful of looking after our mental health. There are a number of resources available. 

Let’s all take care of ourselves and others.
