Nestlé is prepared to resume operating in Ukraine to help maintain food supplies during the course of the country’s struggle with Russian invaders, according to a report in Reuters.

Nestle has three factories in Ukraine, which it closed immediately after the invasion.

“We are trying to reopen parts of the supply chain and distribute to retailers where it is safe to do so. The latest information is this was partially possible," a Nestlé spokesperson told Reuters.

Nestlé’s three factories in Ukraine manufacture powdered and liquid beverages, confectionery, and prepared dishes and cooking aids, according to Nestlé’s annual report. The company told Reuters that it uses mostly local ingredients, but some are imported. Ukraine shut its ports after the invasion, and it was unclear how foreign ingredient shipments would reach the country’s interior.
