Since the pandemic began, the tissue industry has been working tirelessly to meet demand. Charmin’s Oxnard, California, plant releases numerous trucks daily loaded with thousands of rolls of branded toilet paper.
Again, this product, as well as other products for basic needs, is starting to run out of shelves and American supermarkets are again limiting purchases.
Consumer experts say the new shortage was due to an increase in the number of new coronavirus infections in the United States and this has generated another wave of panic buying, in which consumers have chosen to stock products again.
Thus, Charmin continues to work hard to produce its products and offer them to American citizens.
“They asked me and I said, ‘We work 24 hours a day, seven days a week, every minute of the day.’ We are breaking records in our production in the United States,” said Lizanne Nañez, from the Finance Department at Charmin.
Charmin did not release specific figures, but commented that the Oxnard plant is operating at full capacity.
In addition, the factory is very careful to prevent its workers from being exposed to the virus, as this would also affect production. They carry out tests and exams constantly to ensure the safety of their employees.
