Communication: Ref: COVID-19 Issue 1 Monday, 16th March 2020
Dear Members, Suppliers, Customers, & Employees,
I wish to update you on the status of Dairygold’s response to the current COVID-19 situation. We are taking necessary steps to ensure the safety, health and wellbeing of our employees, customers, suppliers, contractors, visitors and other partners. As we enter the busy peak season, our focus is on collecting and processing milk and supplying finished product to our customers as well as manufacturing and supplying farm inputs (Feed, Fertiliser, Farm Requisites, etc.) and maintaining our Retail offering via Co-Op SuperStores. While doing this, our collective focus will be on safety and avoiding risk of COVID-19 contact.
As part of Dairygold’s Business Continuity Planning, we have stablished a COVID-19 Response Steering Group, to monitor COVID-19 impacts in our operations and to ensure that all necessary actions and appropriate measures are being taken to protect people’s health and safety across all areas of the business.
We continue to operate our business continuity plan for all areas. To date, the following measures have been implemented;
Agri Business and Retail Operations
As we are in unchartered territory it is important to note that Dairygold’s contingency plans will continue to evolve and we will be updating them as appropriate to our website www.dairygold.ie
Dairygold is taking all necessary precautions in line with HSE guidelines to ensure we continue to operate good health and safety procedures while we continue to process our Members’ milk, provide essential services to our customers and ensure the health and safety of our employees.
Remember, while COVID-19 represents an unprecedented challenge, we are all in this together and the health and safety of our Dairygold family is of paramount importance. Whether at work, at home or elsewhere in the coming weeks, please remember to keep safe and follow HSE guidelines.
