We at Pride Milling understand and recognise the potential impact of the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic. Therefore we have implemented precautionary measures and are committed to ensuring that the spread of the virus, within the context of our company, is contained to the best of our ability.
We have contingency plans in place that follow the guidelines provided by the World Health Organisation (WHO). These procedures apply to all our work activities, our employees and the communities surrounding our mills and are intended to ensure the impact on our business, and subsequently our suppliers, customers and consumers, are limited to a minimum.
Precautionary measures include hygiene training for our staff and visitors, and intense cleaning programmes. Visitors and employees will undergo a screening process to identify potential infections. Thresholds have been put in place to minimise the risk of infected persons entering our site.
We are restricting face-to-face meetings to an absolute minimum and encourage conference calls instead.
The emergency plans we have implemented are flexible and consider the potential impact on our customers. The company will constantly monitor the circumstances to provide information to staff and customers to limit business disruptions and the risk of contamination. We will communicate any new developments, depending on how the situation with the COVID-19 pandemic may progress, through publication on our website (www.pridemilling.co.za) or official letters from the CEO.
Please be assured of our commitment to overcome the challenges caused by the COVID-19 pandemic in the most effective way.
