The World Health Organisation has declared that the outbreak of 2019-nCoV – commonly known as Coronavirus – constitutes a public health emergency of international concern (30th January 2020). As part of our standard business proceedings, Braehead Foods Ltd constantly monitor our supply chain for any adverse factors which could potentially cause disruption for our clients and partners. Despite the scale of the current outbreak, the potential risk presented by the Coronavirus falls within the scope of our existing supply chain management procedures and we can confirm that we have adequate procedures and policies in place to pre-emt and manage such situations.
At the time of this statement very little of our product portfolio is sourced from countries significantly affected by the current Coronavirus outbreak. Sufficient stocks are in place to ensure our customers are not disrupted and that supply remains unaffected. Immediate steps have been taken to further increase stocks of products that may potentially be affected in future as a precautionary measure.
The situation is being kept under constant review and customers will be notified at the earliest opportunity of any disruption to products they regularly purchase. In the unlikely event this becomes an issue, suitable alternatives will be recommended.
Following a comprehensive risk review, Braehead Foods do not envisage any disruption for the supply of Braehead Foods products as a result of Coronavirus.
