In light of the current events involving Covid-19 and health safety, we have already ramped up our rigurous sanitation and cleaning practices to ensure we can continue to provide a safe and wholesome product for our customers during this time.
In addition to our current GMP guidelines involving glove usage, hand washing and cleanliness for our individual employees we have also increased the sanitization practices of all machinary, knives and slicers to ensure all products are handled in the safest way possible. Our employees are encouraged to wear masks, wash and sanitize their hands more often than usual, and distancing themselves from other employees as much as possible. We have also made sure all employees are staying home if they feel under the weather and verifying each employee is well when arriving to work each day.
We have also made the conscious decision to no longer accept walk in customers, though we are still serving our customer base by shipping both locally and nationally as well as offering a "curb side pickup" for our local customers who call ahead to order. Our management has also informed all delivery and pickup trucks that they are not permitted within the facility and that they must remain in their trucks at all times to further cut down on exposure to our employees and facility.
We are doing all we can to continue to operate during this time and to provide not only a safe and wholesome product for our customers but also to give our employees the peace of mind to know that they can be comfortable coming to work during such an unexpected time. We hope we can continue to serve our community for as long as possible during this pandemic and are so grateful for every customer who continues to support local by purchasing from us!
