Costa has implemented a COVID-19 Action Plan to ensure that as a business we are doing everything we can to prevent the spread of coronavirus in our workforce and the general community.
The health and safety of our employees and their families is our key priority and we have established COVID-19 Steering Committees to ensure we can respond rapidly across our business.
As an essential service, it is also important we maintain business processes that are critical to our day-to-day functioning.
We are continuing to follow closely the advice of the Federal Department of Health and have implemented a range of health and safety protocols including new arrangements for contractors and visitors to our sites, hygiene and cleaning practices, working from home policies and social distancing.
We have provided a suite of resources for our staff, including a dedicated intranet page and free-call health hotline and will be continuing to update advice as necessary.
In addition to our focus on the health and wellbeing of our employees, we are maintaining our rigorous food safety and quality processes.
As one of Australia’s leading fruit and vegetable producers, it is critical we continue to be able to provide quality fresh produce to our customers, both here in Australia and overseas.
During our peak harvest seasons across all our produce categories, we have high labour requirements. In these uncertain times, we encourage people in industries that have been directly impacted to explore our employment opportunities.
