Statement from MCLE CEO on Corona Virus (COVID-19) and our Supply Chain
– Jun Minamitani, Chief Executive Officer
MCLS Europe, B.V. (MCLE) has been a trusted partner with access to safe, healthy and functional ingredients for the food and beverage industries worldwide. We are fully committed to maintaining these high standards as the circumstances surrounding the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak evolve.
As the Coronavirus has spread globally, MCLE has taken several steps to ensure the continued safety, quality and availability of products which you purchase from us. Since January, we have been reminding our employees of the importance of taking all appropriate precautions to protect themselves from infection, and to stay home if they feel ill. Some of our other recent actions include:
- We remain in daily contact with our partners to monitor inventory levels and remain alert to any potential supply-chain disruptions, in order to ensure we are meeting your needs.
- Business travels are currently restricted. Any plans to attend large scale events such as trade shows, conferences, seminars etc. have been postponed.
- Our crisis and risk management team meets several times per week to assess the need for additional precautions or procedures.
While we will continue taking all necessary steps to maintain uninterrupted deliveries to our customers, we are also mindful that the situation could be impacted outside of our control. If we believe supply chain disruptions are likely, we will communicate these to you as quickly as possible. If you have any questions, concerns or suggestions in the meantime, please reach out to me, or to your MCLE contact partner.
As always, we appreciate your confidence in our people and the products that we provide. We look forward to continuing to serve you for many years to come.
Chief Executive Officer
