03 Mar 2020, Singapore - Dear Partners, since the last update, media reports have confirmed that Indonesia now has 2 confirmed COVD-19 cases. We are monitoring the situation very closely. Relevant authorities in many countries have introduced measures to restrain the spread of the infection.

Our manufacturing facilities are not affected by the current outbreak thus far. We employ strict hygiene practices in our operations worldwide. We also have efficient well-staffed medical facilities available at all of our Plantation and production locations.

As our raw materials (Fresh Fruit Bunches, Crude Palm Oil , Palm Kernels, and Coconut Oil) are almost exclusively produced in Indonesia, we foresee no disruption in our supply base or within our manufacturing operations.

Additionally, stringent precautionary measures have been taken to safeguard the health and safety of all our staff worldwide.

Precautions include:

1.       Travel restrictions to and from China

2.       Declaration of travel history

3.       All employees who are in contact with someone who is suspected of having the Novel Coronavirus have to take a leave of absence to self-quarantine for 14 days

4.       Implementation of additional workplace safety and hygiene

These measures have been communicated early throughout our organization and will be updated as more information on the virus becomes available. Our proactive response will ensure the continuation of high-quality products delivered by the Musim Mas Group.
