These are unprecedented times as the coronavirus (COVID-19) spreads throughout the world and we are seeing a growing concern in our families, communities and businesses. In this time of uncertainty, we continue to plan for the unexpected, heighten and refine our safety protocols and take action to mitigate the potential impact of the virus. We will continue to work around the clock with farmers, suppliers, and customers to help feed the world safely and responsibly.
Our commitment to our values of TRUST, SERVING, SIMPLICITY, and SAFETY are ingrained in everything we do and guide us in every decision we make. We have activated several of our contingency plans to help ensure the safety of our people and products and provide supply assurance to our customers. This includes additional cleaning and sanitation procedures, eliminating all domestic and international travel, heightened visitor protocols at our facilities, implementing social distancing practices and adopting shift flexibility.
Our flour milling facilities, bakery and mix plants are operating strong and we are equipped to handle what may come next. We are working with our suppliers and partners, and at this time, we do not anticipate any disturbance to grain origination or ingredient availability related to COVID-19.
Like so many others, we want to thank and support our customers, suppliers, and farmers whose selfless dedication and efforts continue to ensure a safe sustainable food supply for all. And we can’t forget the efforts of our first responders, health professionals, and government officials, along with so many others, who are working tirelessly to help keep us safe and secure.
We stand strong in our foundation of serving our people, our customers and our communities with our mission of enhancing the quality of life and standard of health. If you would like to learn more about our specific contingency plans or if you have questions, concerns or if there is anything, we can do to help you at this time, please do not hesitate to reach out to your sales representative or call (800) 851-9618.
