During COVID-19, the Alberta pork sector continues to operate; however, the situation can change quickly. The board and staff at Alberta Pork have been monitoring the various events and issues that could affect producers and the pork industry. There have been almost daily conference calls at the national, regional and provincial levels with government and industry leaders, to help ensure our industry operates as smoothly as possible given the current situation.
While almost everyone is working from home and we all practice our self-isolation requirements, Alberta Pork is still here to help Alberta’s registered pork producers wherever possible.
