Riberalves launches a door-to-door codfish distribution initiative, with no delivery costs, seeking to meet the needs of citizens in the face of the Covid-19 outbreak. Logistics complies with best health, hygiene and food safety practices, as well as with the recommendations of the Directorate-General for Health: no social contact.

Following the outbreak of Covid-19, the characterization of a Pandemic declared by the World Health Organization and the quarantine recommendations advised to the national citizens by several organisms, namely the Directorate-General for Health (DGS), Riberalves starts a distribution operation of Ready to Cook Codfish at home, in the District of Lisbon, without delivery costs, trying to cover the needs of the citizens.

The initiative aims to minimize the limitations in individual travel, making possible that only one person, the Riberalves employee, can reach as many homes as possible. In this sense, deliveries are made possible by Riberalves’ own distribution fleet, installed and operating in the District of Lisbon, with guaranteed agility, not being able, for logistical reasons, to extend to other parts of the country.

The operation, from order processing to delivery, observes the best health, hygiene and food safety practices, as well as the DGS recommendations, related to the prevention of contagion from Covid-19. In this sense, deliveries are made upon pre-payment and orders are left at the door of the indicated addresses, without social contact. Still, Riberalves appeals to all DGS recommendations to be followed by customers.

All the mechanics of the initiative are announced at www.riberalves.pt. Orders, with a minimum value of 35€, should be made via email.

In parallel with this initiative, Riberalves, as a food company, continues its mission of supplying the distribution chain, seeking to contribute so that the Portuguese continue to have access to essential products. All the company’s activity follows the DGS recommendations.

Finally, Riberalves expresses a public word of homage and gratitude to all its employees, and also to all the Portuguese people who, thanks to their effort, spirit of solidarity and commitment, have done everything to adopt the best practices of prevention against Covid-19, keeping their jobs, guaranteeing national production and household supplies. These people evoke the best values that characterise the History and People of this Country, values that are fundamental to overcome this moment.
