We are currently living in an extraordinary situation as a result of the corona virus (COVID-19) epidemic; an epidemic that has forced us to change the way we live and how we behave in our day-to-day lives.
We know that this situation is very difficult for everyone, and on behalf of myself and of the entire management team, I would like to extend our gratitude to all of the healthcare staff who are working directly with those who have been affected most, to the supermarket staff who are doing all that they can to ensure that the population continues to have access to all of its supplies, and to our suppliers, who have demonstrated great commitment and dedication to meet the extraordinary demands for supplies.
But we have left our most important thank you for last. We would like to thank those people who are working behind the scenes to ensure that the supermarkets shelves are fully stocked when they open their doors each day, to ensure that there are no product shortages and that the population is fully supplied.
That is why we want to say THANK YOU, THANK YOU, AND THANK YOU A THOUSAND TIMES MORE to everyone who forms part of this great company, Grupo Ubesol. This miracle is only possible thanks to your enormous efforts and commitment, you have risen to the occasion and demonstrated day in, day out that you really are the Group’s most important asset and the reason why we are able to provide such a great level of service in response to these extraordinary circumstances.
As a sign of our commitment to society, as well as considerably boosting our productivity and working flat out to guarantee the supplies of our essential products, we have also adapted our manufacturing processes to be able to include Hand Sanitiser in our product portfolio. Both the healthcare authorities and the government recommend using hand sanitiser to help prevent the spread of the coronavirus, and as expert manufacturers, we considered it to be our duty to begin to manufacture this product in order to meet the needs of our society.
That is why we would like to give a special mention to all of those who are working so hard to fulfil our duty to society by producing as many hand sanitisers as possible.
However, despite the great efforts that we are asking of all of our staff, the Management Committee has not lost sight of the Group’s main objective; to limit the impact of this pandemic on the health of our employees by minimising the risk of contagion. That is why we have drawn up an Internal Action Protocol to boost our hygiene measures, minimise contact between workers as far as possible, and enable people to work remotely in the positions for which this is possible, in addition to other measures which we are updating on a daily basis.
These are difficult times, and now more than ever, it is important that we are all working together and pulling in the same direction with a common goal.
