It is not a problem either. After the high alert regime was introduced, the Moscow supermarkets actually became empty for a couple of days, but this was more likely due to the people's instinct to provide themselves with food before facing the danger, and certainly not due to the fact that there was a lack of anything in the city. Soon, stores got used to the increased demand and filled the shelves with all kinds of food again.
How did Moscow product manufacturers manage to adapt to the current conditions? In the high alert regime, the enterprises have not reduced the production volumes, but only made the already stringent food safety requirements stricter to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
In total, 65 enterprises are engaged in the Moscow food industry. Absolute safety is achieved by using modern technologies, which the Moscow food industry has long been familiar with. For example, all processes at Ochakovo are automated, drinks are produced and bottled without human participation: people contact neither the ingredients nor the finished product directly. The employees monitor and operate the equipment using computer programs.
Of course, Moscow manufacturers duly responded to the pandemic and moved part of the employees to remote work. Only those specialists, the factory could not do without, remained at their workplaces. Enterprises stepped up security and preventive measures, tightened the incoming control. The employees' temperature and general condition are monitored, the staff is provided with disinfectants, and the premises cleaning frequency has been increased. Companies refused holding offline meetings with partners and switched to online meetings.
The representatives of the Moscow enterprises Cherkizovo, Ochakovo, Dymov, Lianozovsky and Tsaritsinsky dairy plants, Kolomensky, Baskin Robbins, Bakery Plant No. 24, Extra-M, Karat, Coca-Cola, Udarnitsa, Russkart, Cheryomushki, Meridian, and Krasny Oktyabr say that they are operating normally, which means we will definitely have products for our fine cuisine.
