Global packaging producer Ecolean and its customers in the Chinese dairy sector are donating products to hospitals and other institutions in communities affected by general restrictions due to the coronavirus outbreak.
The customers’ challenges include limited production and importing capacities resulting from quarantines and travel restrictions in central China. Chinese manufacturing and trade industries, as well as the complete dairy supply chain, have been impacted since the restrictions started.
“Ecolean is one of the few producers in the TEDA area in Tianjin allowed to operate its production plant for packaging material. As a result, we are fortunate enough to be able to secure a steady supply to our customers, so they can keep up production volumes. Together with several dairy brands that are some of our largest customers in China, we are now donating products such as chilled yogurt and pure milk to different institutions, such as hospitals in affected communities”, said Johnny Sajland, global sales director of the Ecolean Group.
“We see our customers as our partners and these constructive collaborations confirm that we are on the right path, working together. This is our way of caring for and contributing to the societies in which we operate. It has been natural for us to offer our support to our customers, and we will continue to do so during the market’s recovery”.
