Press release Q1 202027.05.2020 News
A difficult quarter with lower than expected order intake
The first Quarter of 2020 was as unusual for Haarslev as for most other businesses around the world. Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, our Chinese factory was ordered to remain closed after Chinese New Year and we lost approx. 4 weeks of manufacturing. Fortunately, we also managed to get through the period without infections amongst our employees.
We are already seeing an increase in orders from some of the regions, which have been hit the hardest by COVID-19, but we continue to follow the updates from the food industry around the world and make our decisions accordingly.
