Pandemic (Human to Human)
Description: The outbreak of Corona Virus 2019 or COVID-19 has been creating global scale impacts, and it is alarming to realize the actual severity of these impacts. It is well-known that changing in climate patterns, melting of ice caps, and rising global temperature will increase the chance of new diseases and virus, intensify the severity of existing diseases and virus through mutation, and awaken the pre-dominant disease and virus that have been frozen within the ice caps. If these happen, it is predicting that the impacts will be much more critical and might reach the point of no turning back. All these scenarios are forecasting to happen within the next three to six years if no serious mitigations are being implemented to limit the rising of global temperature well below 1.5 degree Celsius.
Impacts: As a food producer and retail distributor with operation in 21 countries, safety and hygienic in production process is the topmost priority. In case of pandemic – human to human occur, it is likely to create impact in term of raw material shortage, and production interruption. If food producers fail to secure the safety and hygienic of products deliver to consumers and customers, then we will be facing numerous losses, such as financial, market share, customer base, reputational, and trust.
Mitigations: To prepare our employees, especially employees working in the production facilities, to be ready for next pandemic, CPG provides constant trainings, awareness building, and communications with our employees to be self-projection, as well as to be well-aware of any non-hygienic act. Moreover, CPG provides necessary and adequate personal protective equipment to our employees to ensure that no contamination will occur within the production processes and among employees themselves, practices social distancing to become the new normal, and uses more digitization and technologies in the production process.
