AB Mauri vows to keep entire customer base supplied
As you are all aware, in light of the COVID-19 outbreak, the UK and Irish nations are facing times of isolation and growing restriction concerning movement of people and goods. Our ‘number one’ priority is for all of us to remain safe and well.
AB Mauri believe our duty of care is to keep our entire customer base supplied with Yeast and Bakery Ingredient materials, to ensure bread and baked goods remain available to supply consumers in these testing times. AB Mauri therefore remain fully committed to maintain trading and to continue supporting our customers, during this time.
Given AB Mauri’s multiple UK locations, movement of personnel has been minimised and restricted as much as is reasonably practicable. In addition, those who are able to do so will work from home whilst the COVID-19 situation is of danger. This of course is being monitored on a daily basis.
To further support our increased manufacturing requirements, we’ve taken the contingency measure to provide several commercial and NPD colleagues with additional training, to support the normal manufacturing teams.
Regarding our own supply chain, AB Mauri is maintaining a number of open discussions with raw material suppliers, in order to mitigate any impacts that may arise from international border restrictions, over the coming weeks and months.
This outbreak creates many practical challenges for us, as it undoubtedly has for many other businesses. It is absolutely essential that government classification of our industry, is considered as critical during these times, enabling us to continue to provide invaluable support to our customers and increasing our ability to respond to all the practical challenges we’ll encounter over the coming weeks and months.
As a key contributor to the UK and Ireland food supply chain, AB Mauri would like to reassure the Bakery Industry that it is ready and able, through planning and resourcing, to support customers and key stakeholders during these unprecedented times.
Customers with questions or concerns should contact us through either our customer services team, or their account manager as at all other times.
