Safety and health are top priority

Special year, special campaign and the virus will continue to be with us. From the beginning, health protection and stopping the spread of the Covid-19 virus have been top priorities at Nordzucker.  

“The most important thing for me is to set a good example. No one wants to be infected. The health system has to be relieved and despite all the measures, the campaign had to run and the business had to be maintained,” explains Dr. Lars Gorissen, CEO.

Nordzucker employees have impressively shown how it can be done. For example, a large number of preventive measures were already implemented in the spring of 2020 and strictly followed through the phase of easing in the summer. These included: shift separation, home office, distance & hygiene rules, UVC disinfection and refraining from physical meetings, visits to the plants and business trips.

“Good precautions are one thing; a high sense of responsibility and exemplary cooperation among managers and employees are another. We had a high level of acceptance of the rules right from the start and are very proud to have come through the campaign in all countries without any significant problems,” adds Axel Aumüller, COO. The task now is to get through the upcoming maintenance and investment phase in an equally disciplined, effective and, above all, healthy manner.
