Customer information with regard to the coronavirus situation

Statement of Worlée NaturProdukte GmbH with regard to the topic "infectiousness of coronavirus via food".

Dear Business Partners,

We would like to answer your inquiry regarding the situation at Worlée NaturProdukte GmbH in connection with the Corona virus (SARS-CoV-2):

We have been discussing the situation regularly since the outbreak of the novel corona virus.

We are in close contact with the responsible authorities, our company doctor and the various food associations. We also track the information from various sources, e.g. the Robert Koch Institute (RKI), the Federal Institute for Risk Assessment (BfR) and many other institutions.

The BfR has stated that the transmission of the corona virus via food is very unlikely.

Worlée also bears responsibility for its employees and business partners. For this reason, business trips and visits to the company were postponed until further notice. The employees were trained on precautionary measures and sensitized.

Also, a checklist is used to ask visitors and carriers about their stay in risk areas, contact with an laboratory confirmed infected person and their current state of health. As a producer of dried raw materials for the production of durable foods, we consider ourselves a representative of the "critical infrastructure" and contribute to the security of supply for the population. Food production is also defined as "critical infrastructure" by law in the EU Directive 2008/114/EC (National Strategy for Critical Infrastructure Protection and BSI Act). In order to be able to guarantee this security of supply and thus continue to meet deliveries, we have established a pandemic plan. According to the current status, we are able to meet the deliveries.

So far, there has been no confirmed case of illness of the Corona virus in the company.

Yours faithfully

Worlée NaturProdukte GmbH
Quality Assurance
