As lockdown restrictions begin to ease and more and more people are starting to return to work and get out a bit more we would like to update you on how we are responding to this at Upstream and to update you on the measures we have in place to protect our people.
The welfare of our people remains paramount. Ensuring our workers feel safe and protected is our no.1 priority. As our teams slowly return to work we have implemented additional hygiene standards for all staff and have put social distancing markers throughout the office and factory with extra training and regular health and safety inspections to ensure all our employees are distanced and protected. We are continuing to limit all visitors to the office and factory and where possible some of our people continue to work from home.
As a UK based business we are in a strong position to ensure availability of supply. We have continued to supply all customers successfully throughout lockdown thanks to the hard working efforts of all our key workers and we are confident that supply will continue to be unaffected. Our teams continue to work hard to manufacture and ship as much as we can as quickly and efficiently as possible to ensure we can keep the country hydrated across the coming summer months.
As a true north east business we are doing everything we can to support our local community and are working with various local organisations, providing donations where possible to help those most in need.
Finally, we want to say a heartfelt thank you to all our suppliers, customers and consumers who have continued to support us through these unprecedented of times and we look forward to continuing to delight our customers with high quality, great tasting products for many years to come
Stay well and keep going.
Sending our best wishes
The Upstream team
