Our first priority is ensuring that we take all possible steps to protect and support our colleagues; be they now working remotely or as recognised key workers at our manufacturing sites. It’s a whole team effort and we are proud to be able to helping families eat well. We wanted to share with you some of what we’re doing as a company to keep everyone safe and connected.
In line with government guidelines and with huge support from IT, all those colleagues who are able to work from home are doing and are doing it well.
Social distancing practices are being rigorously observed at our manufacturing sites; as you would expect, our Business Continuity Teams are reviewing the situation daily to ensure that government guidelines are followed.
Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
As you would expect, PPE is routinely worn by colleagues at our manufacturing sites – we continue to monitor the usage guidelines and we’re working closely with our suppliers to maintain our supplies.
PIA (Princes Industrie Alimentari)
Our Italian operation based in the southern region of Puglia is still operating effectively but remains closed to all visitors and rigorous measures are in place to prevent the spread of infection, including social distancing. All non-essential activities have ceased and all colleagues are following measures required by the Italian government.
Princes Tuna Mauritius (PTM)
Our Riche Terre site is operating with reduced staffing levels in line with Mauritian government advice, with social distancing and PPE being key priorities.
