The occupying Russian administration in the city of Kherson, Ukraine, is attempting to reopen a Danone plant that was closed amid the ongoing conflict between the two countries.
Located in Kherson, Danone’s Dnipro plant was closed in March to protect employees.
“The plant has incurred significant damage as a result of Russian hostilities in the area and we do not believe that the Provisional Occupation Administration will be able to resume operations there,” stated a spokesperson from Danone.
The dairy giant added that if the Dnipro plant were made partially operational, it cannot “stand by the quality and processes that might be used, given the departure of most of the workforce and the damage to the plant itself”.
Danone says that it will not be responsible for the safety and quality of any products produced at the damaged facility.
