Responding to Coronavirus

GCCA is working closely with our association members and leaders as well as government officials, food industry partners, and the WFLO Scientific Advisory Council to ensure members have the vital information they need to ensure business continuity during these unprecedented times.

In addition, the association staff are working to promote the critical role temperature-controlled logistics plays in keeping the global food supply chain running to ensure food products are moving to those who need it even with major restrictions in place worldwide.

Action Alert: Supporting Our Heroes

As the U.S. government considers additional measures to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic, we encourage you to contact your elected officials urging them to recognize the men and women who ensure we have access to food and give them well-deserved tax relief for their commitment during this pandemic. Our partners at the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) have established an online portal for the food industry to contact their elected officials. By going to, you can enter your name and address to generate an email to your Senators and Representative. The process only takes a few minutes and is an easy way to communicate your support for critical infrastructure workers.
