COVID-19 Response

As we all learn to navigate through these challenging times, we first and foremost want to thank all of the first responders and essential employees who continue to serve our communities; doctors, nurses, firefighters, police officers, retail personnel, farmers, and manufacturing employees are just some of the people who bravely continue to show up to work every day so that others may be healed, protected, cared for, and fed. All of us here at Axium Foods are grateful for your dedication and your service.

Our top priority has always been the safety of our employees, business partners, and consumers. That focus continues now more than ever and as we traverse this new landscape, we feel it’s important to share with you the many safety and precautionary measures we’re taking to protect us all.

  • Until further notice, visitors are not allowed into our facilities without a prior appointment.
  • Hand sanitizer and disinfecting wipes, in addition to many handwashing stations, are dispersed throughout our facilities for everyone to use.
  • Masks are required for all employees and visitors.
  • Face shields are required for certain personnel and available to all, and must be worn in conjunction with masks.
  • Social distancing signs are posted throughout our facility and reinforced with lines marked on the floors in certain areas.
  • Additional break areas have been created, along with limited seating and capacity limits in these areas to help ensure social distancing.
  • Acrylic barriers have been installed in high-risk areas.
  • All meetings requiring five or more people must be held via conference calls.
  • Increased cleaning and sanitizing are taking place in all areas of our facilities, including high-use areas and contact surfaces such as breakrooms, bathrooms, doorknobs, copiers, etc.
  • Mini paper towel dispensers have been installed at all entryways to increase sanitary measures.
  • We continue to monitor the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and World Health Organization (WHO) websites along with our local authorities for new information and then communicate that information to our employees.

From all of us here at Axium Foods, we thank you for your continued support and ask that you stay safe as well.
