Vallis response to COVID-19
Vallis has been monitoring the COVID-19 situation very closely and is taking continuous action to manage potential health and business risks within our operations across our 45 countries in the Middle East and Africa.
During these challenging times, our dedicated staff continue to work around the clock ensuring strategic commodities and CMA operations continue with minimal disruption whilst taking all the necessary safety precautions and strictly adhering to new government guidelines as they are being implemented.
Since the outbreak of the coronavirus, the top priority for Vallis has been the health and safety of our employees whilst continuing to maintain high levels of service. This has been maintained applying the following measures:
- Travel restrictions and setting up home working arrangements to minimize the spread of the virus;
- Stricter control, hygiene and prevention measures across in-country offices;
- Delivery of regular communications on COVID-19 updates to our employees through emails, meetings and company newsletters;
- Provision of regular updates and information to customers about our services and efforts to limit any potential disruption to their supply chain and guarantee the safety of their stock;
- Receipt of regular updates on behalf of in-country staff regarding new restriction measures taking place across the countries where we work.
