As the novel coronavirus has spread throughout the world, Puratos is providing support to healthcare workers battling the crisis on the front lines, to hospitals caring for the sick as well as to more vulnerable communities.
We thank our colleagues for triggering such heart-warming initiatives as they truly reflect the values and way of acting we believe in at Puratos.
Ever since the outbreak of the dreaded Covid-19, first line teams have been working around the clock to bring things under control. Colleagues around the world, in some cases with the help of local partners, are stepping up to support those healthcare workers on the front lines of the pandemic.
Some people have been hit harder by Covid-19 and are more vulnerable and isolated than ever. Colleagues around the world are supporting the elderly and people with underlying health conditions with a series of local initiatives:
Healthcare workers rely on personal protective equipment to protect themselves and their patients from being infected and infecting others. But shortages are leaving doctors, nurses and other frontline workers dangerously ill-equipped to care for Covid-19 patients, due to limited access to supplies such as gloves, medical masks, respirators, goggles, face shields, gowns, and aprons.
Bakers play a key local role towards a well-functioning food supply. To guarantee food security for fellow citizens, it is important to help bakers support their local communities.
As goes for everyone, at Puratos, the health emergency caused by Coronavirus is having a significant impact on our work and our daily lives.
We would like to inform you that, in full compliance with local authority guidelines around the world, Puratos has taken all the internal measures necessary to strengthen the health and safety of our employees and business partners, as well as to continue to ensure the production and supply of our products to all our customers.
We are issuing some articles to help guide you through these challenging times:
