While retailers are assuring that the reserves of food and base necessities will be sufficient, residents continue to empty store shelves. Other than long-lasting food products, one of the most popular goods in Lithuania as of late has been toilet paper, concerns over a lack of which are among the most notable. Nevertheless, producers assure the public that Lithuania won’t face a shortage of toilet paper and call to shop responsibly.

“Increased public concern with food and household goods reserves in their homes is likely based on examples from abroad. However, there’s no need to panic because we are doing our all for manufacturing not to cease and all consumer needs to be met. That said, due to increased demand and logistics challenges, there is potential for delays, but this will definitely not lead to a deficit of toilet paper.

In solidarity with the Lithuanian Retailers Association, we urge you to remain call, understanding and avoid excess purchasing,” Tomas Jozonis, the CEO of Grigeo, a company producing hygienic paper, states.

According to T. Jozonis, ensuring the continued production of toilet paper under quarantine conditions is ensured by an assembled crisis management team, which began working as soon as the first signals of the virus reached the country.

“In order to ensure our staff’s security, we are operating based on our disease prevention action plan: we control our staff’s entry into premises, ensure clothes changing, eating zone security. We have reduced staff numbers to the minimum in our manufacturing spaces; entering staff are automatically checked with a thermal visor; the temperatures of entering drivers are also checked. We employ all possible means of information. Unfortunately, we cannot maintain production processes remotely. Thus we are doing out all to ensure our staff’s security and to ensure consumers do not face a lack of production,” T. Jozonis says.
