Keeping Food and Feed Safe in Difficult Times: Romer Labs Addresses the COVID-19 Crisis

A statement from Romer Labs on measures addressing the COVID-19 (coronavirus) crisis.

The health and safety of our customers, employees and stakeholders is of paramount importance to us. For nearly 40 years now, we have relied on the most advanced of scientific research to pursue our dedication to food and feed safety.

Now, science is leading us to do our part to help stem the spread of COVID-19 (coronavirus). Some of the measures we take are voluntary, while some are in compliance with local and national authorities. Yet, they are all marshalled to one single purpose: to help you – our customers, employees and stakeholders – get through these trying times while still maintaining the safety of our food and feed supply.

Since initial reports of the seriousness of COVID-19, our parent company, ERBER Group, as well as individual units of Romer Labs have enacted specific regional and local action plans to ensure that customers receive the products and services they need while minimizing risk to the people involved in delivering them.

Despite these measures, our production facilities are fully operative, running at levels that satisfy both customer demand and – as always – our quality control requirements. Beyond this, we are doing our utmost to secure future availability, should we be confronted with interruptions in production or logistics.

Specific measures we have taken include:  

  • An international travel ban for all employees and consultants 
  • Cancellation of participation in international conferences and meetings 
  • Home office for most employees 
  • Creation of an internal hotline 
  • Replacing in-person meetings with video and phone conferences 
  • Strict limitation of external visits to offices and production facilities 
  • Increased hygiene and cleanliness measures 
  • More stringent safety protocols for production and logistics 
  • Strict compliance with the guidelines stipulated by local safety and health authorities 

We are continuously monitoring the situation and making adaptations to these measures as necessary. In all matters, we put the safety of people first. We will keep you informed about our efforts to support you as we work to get through this crisis together.

We wish you, your family and your employees all the best.
