Domino's looking to source local produce amidst coronavirus crisis

The chain previously launched a search for more delivery staff.

Domino’s said it is looking to source more local products from farmers and suppliers amidst supply chain disruptions across the globe due to the ongoing pandemic.

“In the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, Domino’s will look to source more local products where available, relying on home-grown produce from Australian farmers and suppliers,” a spokesperson for the pizza chain said in a statement sent to QSR Media.

“The disruption to the global supply chain made the Company reconsider its own supply chain. We believe that countries and companies around the world will adopt a sovereign mindset following COVID-19, and as a result, more consumers will actively seek local produce and goods,” the statement added.

The move to source local products, the chain said, was also done to meet expected demand as the industry pivots to provide more delivery options due to government-imposed restrictions. Back in March, Domino’s launched a hiring spree, looking for 2,000 workers in a bid to boost its delivery services.
