To Our Valued Customers:
Wick's Pies is actively assessing our business continuity plan as concerns over the coronavirus, or COVID-19, spread throughout the nation. We understand the important role our products play in your business. Currently, we do not foresee any disruptions in our supply chain or production and are continuing to produce in the ordinary course of business. We have been in communication with our suppliers and delivery contractors and believe at this time that there will be no interruption to service or delivery.
Like all responsible corporate citizens, we're doing our part to support local health officials and government leaders as they work to prevent the spread of the virus, including instituting company-wide policies that promote social distancing and in being more flexible in our employee attendance policies.
In addition, we are restricting visitors to our office and plant and are encouraging on-going business relationships to take place electronically or by telephone.
Wicks production plant follows the Food and Drug Administration's (FDA) rules laid out for Current Good Manufacturing Practice, Hazard Analysis and Risk Based Preventive Controls for Human Food. We have
enhanced our policy for promoting good hygiene, including handwashing, encouraging employees to avoid close contact with people who are sick and importantly, encouraging them to stay home when they are sick and we have enhanced our daily plant cleaning and sanitation procedures.
Our priority today, as it is at any time, is the safety and well-being of our employees, customers, and consumers. We will continue to closely monitor the domestic and global supply chain during this evolving situation.
Should we be alerted to any significant changes in our status, we will update you.
