At Cargill we have been actively managing our business to continue operating as usual to avoid disruption to our customers whilst also managing the safety, health and wellbeing of our workforce. Our customers are one of our major priorities and we want to ensure we continue to keep you informed.
In Australia, all of our facilities have continued to operate without disruption, including our oilseed crush facilities, our storage and handling facilities and logistics operations. As you would be aware we have introduced precautionary measures to ensure we minimise the exposure risk to the virus including additional health and hygiene practices, temperature screening and the cessation of guests visiting the facilities. Essential engagement with third parties, including contractors and drivers, is continuing subject to the precautions mentioned above.
The recent announcement by the Victorian Government about suburb specific lockdowns will not affect the operations at our plant at Footscray. We will continue to adhere to all the guidelines and protocols for employees and customers that have held us in good stead since the beginning of the pandemic in March.
We will continue to monitor the situation and make any changes necessary to manage the situation and to ensure continuity of our business and yours. We will keep you informed if there are any changes. For now, please do not hesitate to contact us if you have any questions or concerns.
