COVID-19 Response

SU FAMILIA ES MI FAMILIA / YOUR FAMILY IS MY FAMILY

 

 At Casa Sanchez Foods we hold the health, safety, and overall well-being of our family and yours, as our top priority. We are a family comprised of people who make our product and the ones who deliver it. 


With this in mind, we have been closely monitoring the situation around COVID-19 (commonly referred to as coronavirus), responding to new information as it arises, and preparing for all possible scenarios with the goal of continuing to provide the safest products.

The World Health Organization (WHO), Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have not seen evidence that the coronavirus is being transmitted through food or food packaging. Instead, the WHO stated “it is known that food processing conditions are generally effective at destroying viruses.”

We are maintaining our current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and appropriate Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points. (HACCP).   

We are re-emphasizing existing sanitation and illness policies, including frequent and proper handwashing, and our practices regarding wearing proper food safety equipment to ensure you are being supplied with the safest and cleanest food products.

  • We are vigilant of our suppliers, where we source our raw materials, to ensure that they too are following proper protocols.
  • We continue to follow our strict protocols in cleaning and sanitizing our production equipment.
  • We’ve emphasized what team members can do to keep themselves and others safe, including not touching one’s face, and staying home if sick.
  • We are communicating with our employees regarding fitness to return to work, risk of exposure from personal travel, and have restricted air and rail travel.

Be assured we will do everything we can to continue to produce and distribute products safely and will continue to closely follow the guidance of the CDC and local health officials.

In addition:

  • We have hand sanitizer dispensers in all our distribution facilities
  • We are ensuring that our outside sales personnel follow any additional requirements by our customers as they deliver to their facilities.
  • We are limiting access to our facilities to outside entities. 

We are working tirelessly to do what’s best for our employees and our customers.
