Coronavirus (COVID-19) has meant a huge change to our daily lives across the world. During this challenging time, we endeavor to be a reliable and useful source of information for our network.
This is your platform to keep in the know on critical COVID-19 impacts upon supply chains, and IDH and its stakeholders’ mitigating actions.

We are committed to support our public and private partners, so that the consequences to those most vulnerable – the farmer, worker households and SMEs upstream in the supply chains – will be minimized. COVID-19 has demonstrated that we need to work together to win. We are all part of the solution. Businesses and governments must put partnerships at the heart of their solutions. Now is the time to show solidarity with the most vulnerable production systems that serve our world. We believe businesses that stand by their partners in this crisis will come out of this stronger in the long run.
