We value the trust you place in Grimmway Farms and Cal-Organic to grow and deliver fresh produce to you and your family. During this unprecedented global outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19), we are taking recommended precautions to keep you, our family of employees, and our industry partners safe.
The experts and scientists at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and their colleagues at the Food & Drug Administration (FDA) tell us that there currently is no evidence that transmission of COVID-19 is associated with food or food packaging. That news is reassuring, as is their statement that there is likely very low risk of spread from food products or packaging.
Our Grimmway Farms team members across the country follow stringent safety and hygiene standards, and during this time we have increased our ongoing communication so they can protect themselves, their co-workers and communities by adhering to CDC recommended hygiene measures, disinfecting hard services and facilities often, and of course, staying home from work at the first signs of illness. We encourage our customers to follow these same standards, to wash their hands with soap frequently, to be cautious in how they prepare their food, and to work together with us to protect our friends and loved ones from COVID-19.
We are committed to keeping our customers, employees and partners informed and safe, and we will continue to communicate openly and often.
