We have received notification that Covid-19 has triggered a global shortage of disposable gloves that will start to affect NZ in the coming weeks & months.
The outbreak has caused a huge spike in demand plus global production has decreased significantly due to Government shut-downs & State of Emergency being declared in Thailand, Malaysia & China.
We therefore need to implement temporary stock restrictions to ensure fair supply & believe other suppliers will face similar challenges. These will only be available to our Rest Home/Aged Care customers.
Our sourcing team are monitoring the situation & if things improve we will relax these restrictions.
Thanks for your understanding while we work through these challenges.
