How are we handling covid-19 at veestro?


As we continue to monitor Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments closely, and in light of the crowds at grocery stores all around the country, we want to let you know what we are doing to continue providing you with Veestro meals. First, we are producing a surplus of meals to insure you will be able to receive the healthy meals you need when you need them.  

In addition, the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently announced that there have been no reports that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted through food or food packaging. In general, because of poor survivability of coronaviruses on surfaces, there is likely very low risk of spread from food products or packaging that are shipped over a period of days or weeks at ambient, refrigerated, or frozen temperatures. This information was recently shared by the American Frozen Food Institute

The health and well-being of our customers and employees is of utmost importance to us; as such, in addition to all the food safety procedures we have always had in place, we wanted to share how we are increasing our actions to keep Veestro safe for everyone:

  • We have a preparedness plan set in place at our facilities.
  • We are checking all daily updates from the CDC and updating our processes accordingly.
  • We are continuously educating our workers on all food safety measures.  
  • We are taking body temperature of all workers prior to their shifts as well as all persons entering our facilities. 
  • We are conducting heavy environmental cleaning and sanitizing of all work surfaces and other areas constantly.
  • We are requiring all workers who are sick or have a temperature higher than 99.1 to stay home (as per the CDC).
  • We have added extra hand-washing and hand-sanitizing stations throughout our facilities.
Please also note that FEDEX has sent out an alert to expect delays due to the current COVID-19 situation.
We will continue to monitor this fluid situation and will continue making adjustments to our safety practices as recommended by the CDC.
If you have additional questions, please contact us – we are here to help.
