A Message to Our Customers and Community Concerning COVID-19
As the COVID-19 crisis continues to develop, we are increasing our precautions to protect our employees and prevent its spread.
As a food company, we also recognize our responsibility to continue supplying the staple products our consumers count on each day.
On our farms and in our offices, mills and refineries, we are taking every precaution to limit contact, enhance cleaning and screen personnel to ensure we protect our employees. To reinforce their wellbeing at home, we have facilitated early access to prescriptions. We also recognize the stress and anxiety that can manifest during uncertain times like these and have health advocates at the ready to assist with mental wellbeing.
Because we understand our communities are worried and are seeking reassurance that foods will be available to them, alongside our pledge to protect our people, our commitment to provide excellent service to our customers and our focus on making foods readily available for our consumers factor into every decision we make.
For families remaining at home in the coming weeks, we hope to help provide a sense of normalcy. While a routine activity such as sweetening your coffee or tea can lift your spirits, baking is a wonderful way to entertain, teach and bring smiles to children who are adapting to the unique challenge of being out of school.
Finally, in addition to filling orders for supermarkets and food makers, we are packaging extra product donations to assist vulnerable members of our community who are coping with the disruption to jobs and pay. Through partnerships with feeding and food distribution programs, we are striving to do all we can to help meet families’ critical needs.
At Florida Crystals, we believe we are all in this together and must all do our part as we unite to face this unprecedented global crisis. Please be safe, take care of yourselves and your families. We truly believe we will come out of this stronger than ever together.
