Supply Chain Disruption
Our products are made in Indonesia. We began experiencing supply chain disruptions in late December as China began their fight with COVID-19. Our containers are often transported from Indonesia to China, where they are then loaded on larger ships and brought to the United States. We experienced major delays of over two months on multiple containers in the first quarter of 2020.
Indonesia, like much of the world, is suffering through the COVID-19 pandemic and has placed restrictions similar to what we’re experiencing here in the United States. Due to this, our Indonesian team has suspended operations, which effects several of our purchase orders.
Our team, as the majority of the county of Indonesia celebrates Ramadan, which this year begins April 23 and ends May 23. During this time, our production decreases 65%. After Ramadan, there are two official holidays for Idul Fitri, when there will be no production for approximately one week. We are in daily communication with our Indonesian team and are collaboratively seeking solutions for the supply chain disruption surrounding COVID-19 and Ramadan and subsequent holidays. We will post more about our supply chain as updated information becomes available.
