The global outbreak of COVID-19 and its ongoing impact on consumers, farmers and food supply chains is unprecedented and is creating uncertainty for people all around the world.
At Olam, we are fully aware of our responsibility as a leading food and agricultural company, supplying vital staples, feed and fibre to emerging market consumers and food ingredients to all major global, regional and local brands.
We are collectively working around the clock to keep our people and facilities safe, while simultaneously focusing on maintaining supplies of rice, flour, edible nuts and oils, grains, dairy, cocoa, coffee, spices and herbs and packaged foods to our customers, so they will be able to continue to deliver their products to consumers around the world.
Everyone at Olam is working on a global scale with farmers, logistics providers, communities, local governments, health organisations, industry groups, and other partners beyond the capacity of our company, to respond in an agile way to the challenges that we all face at this intense time.
We would particularly like to thank our frontline workers and those of our customers, who are critical to maintaining business continuity.
We will be providing regular public updates on the status of our supply chain operations, mitigation plans and activities. In the meantime, Olam customers can contact their sales leads with any questions or concerns.
