He knew that the protection of people and the foods sources that fed them was crucial to success in business.

With this in mind, we are taking a number of precautionary measures in our business and operating practices.
As a leading North American private label manufacturer, we already have strict safety policies and procedures in place. Our strong biosecurity programs that we follow for food safety also work as protection against any virus. We will continue to maintain these high standards. We are also leveraging our biosecurity and food safety knowledge as we develop and implement measures to enhance our business practices in non-operational environments. We have a visitor screening tool and self-quarantine measures in place.
In our manufacturing plant, we are increasing sanitation in cafeterias, break rooms, locker rooms and washrooms. We stagger break times to reduce the number of people in common areas.
