COVID-19 deep cleans
Businesses are now required to have a COVIDSafe plan if they are in an industry that is permitted to continue operating during Stage 4 restrictions. The MN Buying Group has sourced experienced and trustworthy COVID-19 deep cleaning services to ensure that businesses have an immediate supplier if they have a confirmed or suspected case.
Businesses can organise a COVID-19 clean by contacting suppliers direct, or by contacting Peter on 0408 995 207 or email@example.com
While the MN Buying Group has carefully selected suppliers, businesses should also l review options to ensure the service provider meets their business safety needs.

Businesses interested in purchasing sugar through the MN Buying Group can contact Peter for more information at email@example.com or 0408 995 207. As sugar is a commodity subject to daily price variations, the MN Buying Group will need to coordinate purchase dates across participating businesses.
