Precautions Taken Against Coronavirus Disease
Our precautions keep the business running
First and foremost, our focus is on keeping everyone safe and we have taken prompt action in our plant to get the needed health and safety precautions in place to help ensure the well being of all our colleagues. This is to ensure that we continue to operate and serve our customers.
The safety and quality of our products are top priorities for us, and we can say with confidence that our products are safe!
It is reassuring to know that the Food & Drug Administration has advised that “there is no evidence of food or packaging being associated with the transmission of COVID-19”.
We are following the different requirements by local authorities, and our contingency plans have been quickly put in place to minimize potential impact in our supply chain and delivery to customers.
Until now, we have experienced only minor interruptions. However, we are very much aware that supply chains might be impacted by local and regional issues as the coronavirus continues to spread globally.
We know the coronavirus situation is developing day by day and its status and impact is very different from one country to another. Therefore, Sanford is keeping in very close contact to our suppliers and logistics providers, and in all areas where possible, we are taking proactive steps to stay ahead of potential supply shortages.
We are still here to serve and support you
Our manufacturing plants remain open to enable us to fulfill orders from our customers and ensure that all of you have access to our main products.
Our colleagues are now working from home to avoid large-group environments that the medical experts warn against in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
Since the coronavirus outbreak began, we have implemented additional cleaning and sanitization routines, focusing on high-touch surfaces
We have implemented split shifts to avoid shift-to-shift contact.
We installed temperature screening in our manufacturing facility.
We have reinforced hygiene and exposure guidelines with our employees. If we become aware that an employee is ill or had direct or indirect contact with someone with COVID-19, we will immediately implement our isolation and sanitization protocols and will begin any necessary quarantine.
We have restricted travel and outside visitors and we have decided to significantly limit our face-to-face meetings in general.
We are always fully available – on the phone and online – ready to serve our customers and partners. Contact us.
These are undoubtedly unprecedented times in our world, but, together, we will get through this period of adversity in the best possible manner.
We will focus on staying safe and remain committed to keeping the wheels turning to continue to serve and support our customers.
We will continue to work hard to provide safe, healthy, nutritional products and do what we can to take care of our employees and communities.
