It is considered a great danger, I always remind everyone to be very calm, follow the official instructions of the Government, the Ministry of Health." At the same time Saigon Food also offers additional precautions to all of their employees such as:

  • Check the temperature of employees and customers at the entrance¬†of the Company to support medical care when necessary.
  • Requesting employees whether or not in the production shift to wash their hands often with soap or hand spray bottle arranged by the Company in public areas.
  • To increase resistance, encourage employees to self-supplement vitamins, the company provides free lemonade in the cafeteria area at lunch time.
  • Do not share eating and drinking utensils, the Company has arranged separate trays and utensils for each person at the cafeteria.
  • Communicate with all employees on the precaution of COVID-19

Besides that as a manufacturing company of daily consumption food, Saigon Food is less affected by the disease situation. On the contrary, due to the increasing demand for essential products, the number of orders immediately increased after Tet holiday. For the export market, Japanese partners ordered twice the same period last year, but in the immediate future, Saigon Food can only meet up to 20% of this additional demand to focus resources for domestic customers. For the domestic market, orders also doubled from February and is expected to increase in the near future. During the epidemic season, consumers have prioritized the choice of processed food items, which is the main product of Saigon Food. However Saigon Food is committed not to increase product prices, and search for all possible solutions to meet consumer needs, especially domestic customers.
