A coronavirus outbreak may force Danish Crown’s largest meat processor to set up production in accordance with the precautionary measures imposed by the authorities.
Danish meat companies will continue to operate on a normal schedule until the end of the week. However, the precautionary measures imposed by the authorities may force the manufacturer to introduce alternative work shifts at their plants, the company said in a press release.
“The slaughter and production at Danish Crown businesses will not be stopped any time soon. We will continue to work as usual until the end of the week, then announce production plans for the next two weeks. Danish Crown is one of the companies that is socially responsible for ensuring the availability of goods in Danish stores. We will make a decision on the future mode of operation responsibly, with the opinion of all the workers of production, administration and farmers ”, – said representatives of the producer.
On Wednesday evening, March 11, the country’s government decided to introduce comprehensive measures to curb the spread of coronavirus in Denmark. These include the transfer of employees to teleworking, the closure of educational institutions and restrictions on conducting public events.
