Alongside our customers, suppliers and industry partners, we are constantly monitoring developments regarding the coronavirus/COVID-19 outbreak and continue to follow local government and World Health Organization (WHO) advice relevant to our global network of sites. Safeguarding the health and wellbeing of our people, customers and suppliers, and continuing to supply our products and services remains our priority.
Across the entire AB Agri business, we have taken measures to ensure business continuity and mitigate the risk of the virus impacting our supply chains and the customers who rely on us to help them responsibly produce safe and nutritious food. Such planning is helping us support our teams with staffing across our facilities to avoid disruption to production.
We are in regular contact with the relevant regulatory bodies for guidance and are participating in industry-wide task force groups, as the agricultural sector comes together to maintain animal health, welfare and food production. This action is also informing our dialogue with local governments concerned with long-term food supply.
We are confident that everything is being done to guarantee feed safety and adequate stock levels, and we will continue to partner and support our customers during this challenging period.
