A message from our Group Chief Executive re. Covid-19

Right now, the world has come together to combat the very serious impact of Covid-19. As a large international food group we know we, more than ever, have an important role to play in helping to maintain the  wider food supply chain and also ensuring that households can continue to access and enjoy some of their favourite foods.
Of course, our key priority at this critical time is the health, safety and wellbeing of the more than 4,000 people who work for us across Europe and we continue to take the necessary precautionary measures to protect all our passionate and dedicated people.
Our people are working very hard, and with extra care for themselves and their colleagues, to continue supplying the +90 markets we distribute to globally. Above and beyond implementing special processes to maintain our manufacturing output and to safeguard our own supply chain, we are also working closely with our retail partners to help meet their evolving needs.
Together, all of us across Valeo Foods Group are determined to make a positive difference in people’s lives during this challenging period.
