Dutch processor Vion Food Group has reopened the production facility in Groenlo following a temporary closure due to a coronavirus outbreak.

The facility closed in late May and the processor has reopened it with the introduction of special measures to protect staff.

Vion will introduce a compliance protocol for the entire organisation, with additional measures based on the protocol that were introduced at its site in Boxtel.

The protocols are designed to ensure protection of staff, so that all employees without health complaints can continue to work. Vion has introduced this compliance protocol at all production locations. The Municipal Health Service is monitoring the agreements made.

The key measures include the performing of daily large-scale cleaning and disinfection, aimed at reducing the chance of the coronavirus being present. In addition to this cleaning and disinfection of the work area, the entire area will be disinfected by means of disinfecting air treatment.

The business will also introduce a daily health check, approved by the Municipal Health Service, which includes a test of the health and well-being of all employees upon arrival at the company. Vion will perform this health check every day, for all employees and visitors as well as for inspectors working on site. Vion will provide different language versions and interpreters.

In doing so, Vion focuses in particular on the health and well-being of migrant workers. Vion has already taken additional corona-related measures addressing the living situation and transport of employees and will extend these even further.
