At MG, our team have shown the kind of spirit we've come to expect while tackling the Covid-19 pandemic.
At MG, our teams have shown the kind of spirit we’ve come to expect. We are proud of the way we’ve been helping New Zealand through this pandemic by keeping everyday Kiwi’s supplied with fresh fruit and vegetables.
Our people have been flexible, adapted quickly to working in a different way, worked different hours, worked in new teams, completing different tasks and stuck to the strict Covid-19 protocols we put in place. I am also filled with admiration for the resilience they have shown.
We are equally pleased with the way we are working with our growers and customers, whether that be changing the way we distribute product, helping
find a home for excess product or supporting them as they get back on their feet.
While we all grapple with the current impact of Covid-19, MG and the wider horticulture industry are also dealing with uncertainty surrounding the future.
Navigating challenges is not new for MG and over our 97-year history we have become well-practised in adapting to change by quickly taking action.
It’s still a moving situation which means ourbusiness is prepared to work with both growers and customers in very different ways as we come up against different challenges to the ones we were facing two months ago.
I am also hearing incredible stories about how our growers, customers and our employees have stepped up to help families, neighbours and communities.
In these difficult times, these heartening stories highlight that we are “all in this together” as we head down the road that will lead us back to more normal times.
I’d like to finish by affirming that MG is strong. We are strong because of the deep relationships we have with customers, the backing we have from the growers we represent and a proven ability to deliver under pressure.
