In the midst of changes caused by the outbreak of COVID-19 over the past two years, the company proceeded with proactive management by continuously adjusting its strategies and developing its operational procedures to maximize efficiency. Thanks to the cooperation from shareholders, Executive Board, and staff members, BJC was able to tackle the pandemic quickly and effectively. During this time, the company navigated the COVID-19 outbreak by building trust, educating the customers about its strict and standardized sanitation measures in place, and by expanding all distribution platforms to respond to the needs of customers of all lifestyles.
Moreover, in the aspect of business and financial performance, BJC was inevitably affected by the external factors arising from the aforementioned COVID-19 outbreak. However, as the company established effective, multi-faceted operational directions and strategies to respond to the situation its financial position remained robust.
