We are continuously monitoring the evolving situation around COVID-19 and are following the expert guidance of health authorities, local governments and the World Health Organization. We have implemented the following measures to ensure we can operate safely, and responsibly:

  • Steps have been taken to ensure that all our facilities have increased the frequency and extent of their cleanings
  • All staff are following WHO guidelines for personal hygiene and self-isolation

We have instructed drivers and delivery personnel to follow a ‘No Contact’ delivery policy:

  • When our delivery drivers arrive at your delivery address, they have been instructed to ring the bell, and stand back at a safe distance
  • The driver will place the products at your door and wait for you to answer
  • The driver will then record your name, date and time of delivery in front of you, so you won’t need to sign any paperwork
  • You collect your items and head back indoors
  • Please remember to wash your hands regularly, before and after receiving your delivery
  • Please avoid any direct contact with drivers, such as handshakes
