Because of the spread of the coronavirus, Lantmännen early on developed wide-ranging restrictions for the entire Group to protect our employees and our businesses.
As a global company in agriculture and food, we also have an important social responsibility. Our restrictions apply to working methods, travel, meetings, external contacts and visits to our sites. The restrictions aim to protect the health and safety of our employees and members, to avoid exposing Lantmännen businesses to unnecessary risks and to do all we can to prevent the further spread of infection in society.
All employees at Lantmännen are urged to take precautionary measures to avoid becoming infected or inadvertently spreading the virus further, both during and outside working hours. We are also taking specific safety measures at our production sites and as well as for the personnel working there.
Planning and crisis management groups are still established at all levels in the company. In addition, we are continuously monitoring developments on all our geographic markets in order to take additional precautionary measures when the need arises.
At Lantmännen we have responsible, committed and skilled employees and I am convinced that we manage this situation in the best possible way. It is vital that we all continue to support and help each other and try to find solutions to enable our everyday lives and work tasks to flow smoothly despite this challenging situation.
