We’ve all seen the pictures on social media of empty shelves at supermarkets and toilet rolls disappearing as soon as they appear with the COVID-19 crisis causing some people to panic buy.
White Oak UK customer, Punjab Paper Converters (PPC), appeared on BBC’s The One Show last week to try an allay the public’s fears and discourage people from stockpiling.
The company currently produces over 105,000 rolls per day at their factory in Darwen, Lancashire and manager, Stafford Woods says that in Blackburn alone there are over 2 million rolls being made every day.
When asked what he would say to people thinking of stockpiling, Stafford said:
“Just keep calm! That’s the only thing you can do. There will still be a huge pile of toilet rolls here, tomorrow, next week and in a month’s time when everybody realises that they’ve bought too much”.
