Q : WHAT MEASURES IS SL AGRO TAKING TO PROTECT AGAINST COVID-19 (THE CORONAVIRUS)?
A : A Message from SL Agro on COVID-19: Your safety and wellbeing is our top priority. We are closely monitoring the situation with COVID-19 and plan to take all necessary precautions to keep our consumers, employees and partners safe. Our produce is grown in farms, a controlled environment that allows us to grow produce in a safe, secure and clean environment. We use hair nets, gloves, aprons and masks as well, follow standards of hand washing procedures and have foot baths at every entrance into the farms to keep outside contaminants away from the plants. We follow good manufacturing and agricultural practices and we are proud that our growing process is one of the cleanest and safest in the industry. During the COVID-19 outbreak, we have instituted several additional safety measures:
Our company policy instructs employees not to come into work if they are sick or experiencing any signs of an infectious disease or illness. This policy will be strictly enforced and monitored during COVID-19.
No visitors will be allowed to enter our farms unless they play a critical role in the operation of our farm.
All AL Agro employees have been instructed to restrict travel during the preceding month’s virus outbreak.
We have rigorous and audited sanitation practices. The farms have increased these practices daily. In the event that one of our farm associates were to test positive for COVID-19, we have developed an emergency response plan that will double our daily sanitation procedures based on recommendations from the Government of India.
There is no evidence that fresh produce (or any other food, or other product/ material) can transmit the virus. However, food safety is our topmost priority and we are taking all necessary actions to ensure both our people and our food are safe.
Q : SL AGRO PRODUCES ARE FRESH & HYGIENIC, WHY IS THAT?
A : At SL Agro we grow in a controlled environment, and sell our produce locally. Our greens are grown for flavour and nutrition instead of durability. Given this perfect environment, and a short drive to the local supermarket, we are able to harvest them at their best which results in beautifully fresh and hygiene products.
HOW WE GROW CROPS?
DO YOU USE PESTICIDES?
A :No! We do not spray our produces with any pesticides, herbicides or fungicides at all. Integrated Pest Management allows us to control the population of pests in the farms without the use of pesticides or insecticides.
Q : DO YOUR FARMS USE RENEWABLE ENERGY?
