Tonight the New Zealand government will impose the threat level alert for the COVID-19 pandemic to alert level four.
We are confirming our status as an alert level four “essential business” involved in “Fast-Moving Consumer Goods”, and our commitment to remain open to meet all our customer expectations as normal. We will meet all government requirements.
In accordance with that alert elevation, we have moved to a “work from home” for all administration and office staff who can do so.
- Our cold store and logistic partners are maintaining their operations and productions process as standard, supported by both their onsite and our work from home Customer Service team, and anticipate no disruption to our normal levels of supply.
- Our Sales Team will continue to make contact with customers by telephone and email to ensure that we are aware of their demand and requirements.
We are in a strong position carrying adequate levels of stock and raw materials, our Asian supply partners are supplying as per our normal requirements and their factories continue to produce high quality products. Should any of that situation change, we will work with our customers as a priority to meet their requirements.
We are well positioned to supply our customers through this challenging period.
Thank you to all our customers for their ongoing support of Markwell Foods.
Rest assured that our strong management team and dedicated staff are committed to ensuring our customers’ continuity of business through these challenging times.
