Nadamay tinapay! Gardenia slashes production over checkpoint difficulties in Biñan, Sta. Rosa
Gardenia Bakeries, the largest bread manufacturer in the country, has cut down its production due to checkpoint restrictions in Laguna amid the enhanced community quarantine due to coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19)
Gardenia marketing and sales manager Nestor Constancia told the Philippine Daily Inquirer in an interview that the firm could not keep up with demand due to problems with employees being unable to report for work.
Constancia said the local government of Biñan has barred Gardenia’s employees living in Sta. Rosa from traveling to the municipality after it imposed a lockdown.
Both areas in Laguna have recorded cases of COVID-19.
Constancia said Gardenia’s plant is capable of producing 650,000 loaves and buns every day if it is operating at full capacity.
