In addition, Japanese enterprises also take measures to resolve the pressure of temporary school suspension on employees. Among them, employees are allowed to bring their children to work, and can apply for special leave.
After the temporary suspension of school, the market of fresh milk and vegetables is worrying
A person in charge of Guandong fresh milk sales Federation said that orders were cancelled one after another starting at 4 p.m. on the 28th, and it is expected that up to 80 tons of fresh milk orders will be cancelled every day. Although fresh milk can be sold to those dairy enterprises in the short term, if it goes on in the long term, dairy enterprises will not be able to receive so much fresh milk. Many dairy enterprises are affected by the epidemic, so it is difficult to ensure sufficient labor force. Therefore, how much fresh milk can dairy enterprises receive is also an unknown number.
Its a warm winter from the end of last year to now, and enterprises have increased production, but the overall demand for dairy products is actually declining, said the head of Guandong fresh milk sales Federation. If the school is suspended again, it will be hit twice. Although it has not been affected yet, there is no way out, said the head of a farm in Chiba county. Worried about the long-term trend of the epidemic.
In addition, the dairy industry in Hokkaido has also been greatly affected, with many orders recently cancelled due to the outbreak. So far, these fresh milk are all purchased by local dairy companies to make processed products. But a cruel reality is that the output of fresh milk is increasing, while the demand for drinking milk is decreasing. In addition, the number of tourists is decreasing, and the demand for processed products is also greatly reduced.
The daily supply of vegetables is also affected
According to the standards set by the Ministry of education, science and technology of Japan in 2017, the intake of each meal per person in the school is: 200g milk, 91g vegetables and 52g rice. The decision to suspend school temporarily is also having an impact on the production area and the Japan Agricultural Association (Ja), which is responsible for the supply.
It is understood that a branch of the Japan Agricultural Association in Tokyos capital Xiaoping city had previously signed a contract with the school to guarantee the supply of 4.5 tons of vegetables in March. Affected by the temporary suspension decision, 4.5 tons of vegetable orders have been cancelled. In addition, JA Hiroshima Central Branch used to supply 2 million yen of vegetables to the catering center of donghiroshima city every month, and now began to worry about the cancellation of this stable order.
The national school catering Federation, which supplies food to schools in Japans prefectures and prefectures, said: the formulation of school catering menus and the preparation of food materials need to be determined more than a month ago. The sudden suspension of school will surely cause great confusion.
Compensation has not been considered at this stage, and we will consult with local governments to solve the problem according to the impact, the Ministry of culture, science and technology said Tuesday
