WENLING, China, Feb. 12, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Fuling Global Inc. (Nasdaq: FORK) ("Fuling Global" or the "Company"), today announced that its Taizhou Fuling Plastics Co. ("Taizhou Fuling") subsidiary is donating disposable tableware products and medical supplies to the frontline personnel and hospital workers in Wenling City in support of the fight against the coronavirus epidemic.
"The epidemic is ruthless, as tens of thousands of frontline, anti-epidemic personnel, the real warriors, are putting their lives at risk to prevent the further spread of this horrific infectious disease," said Ms. Guilan Jiang, Chairperson of Fuling Global. "When we learned there is a shortage of disposable tableware for these workers - many of whom must eat their meals in potentially unsanitized environments - we knew that as a manufacturer of disposable tableware products, we have to do our part to assume social responsibility, and contribute in any way we can."
As of February 11, Taizhou Fuling had distributed disposable tableware products, valued more than 270,000 yuan, that were originally earmarked for export to over 20 towns within Wenling City, as well as various medical care protective supplies to the frontline medical staff purchased through friends and family members overseas.
The Company's China operations have started to resume production on February 10, which will help to ensure that Taizhou Fuling can continue to send additional supplies to the anti-epidemic workers, and to ensure customer purchase orders can be processed in a timely order for delivery.
