SARSCoV2 – VOG tackles the situation

20 marzec 2020

In spite of the many difficulties, the Consortium's production and sales activities are continuing, with the health of staff and consumers as top priority.

The VOG Consortium immediately rose to the challenge of the public health emergency in Italy with intelligence and integrity, without underestimating the relative threats.

As well as adopting all the measures recommended by the Government, it has taken additional actions to combat infection, to protect the health of employees, producers and the community at large.

While on the one hand logistics become more problematical and working processes more complex in order to keep staff safe, on the other demand from the market is high: months of march, april and may are indeed very important months for the apple sales season. The Consortium is responding to the increased demand through rational planning of deliveries.

As the European Food Safety Authority has reported, research does not indicate food as a source of infection.
