Jai Ganesh Ramnath, MD, Lavazza India, said, “While there are talks about the importance of contactless delivery of products and services, it is also important to be aware on how they are being manufactured. Though Lavazza buys export quality green beans, the entire stratagem from loading, roasting and processing the green beans into silos to storing, packaging and delivering the coffee beans and grounded powder to the customer is a completely automated process with no human intervention.”

“This is ensured at the utmost priority to maintain the safety of both our employees and our customers. In fact, we have been following this practice of contactless production ever since the inception of Lavazza and the same is being followed in India as well,” he added.
