COVID -19 Response
KeHE is committed to spreading goodness, even during these difficult times.
An Update from our President & CEO
At KeHE, we are doing everything in our power to protect the safety of our employees, while fulfilling the awesome role we have in the food supply chain.
There’s no doubt, COVID-19 has drastically changed the way we live and do business. The demand for food has been well above anything we’ve ever seen, and we are proud to play a critical role in feeding America during this unprecedented time.
I’m incredibly proud of KeHE Nation and their unwavering service to our customers, the company, and their communities. We will get through this together. Here are a few of the ways we’re committed to supporting our employees, as well as our supplier and retailer partners:
Caring For Employees
Supporting those on the frontline. We are monitoring and following state-by-state mandated laws with face masks and social distancing, as well as, increased sanitation and health & wellness checks throughout our organization.
For Drivers & Deliveries, we’re increasing sanitation practices. Disinfectant wipes and hand and sanitizer have been provided to keep work areas clean and drivers are required to wear face coverings.
Sick Employee Policy – If KeHE becomes aware of an employee not feeling well, they will be released from work and provided sick pay and benefits. Should anyone test positive for COVID-19, the employee will be quarantined for the required 14 days.
Serving our Partners
We’re closely monitoring demand and proactively adjusting to give you supply chain confidence. You need stocked shelves, so our team is continuing to provide item replacements and assortment strategy assistance for long term out of stocks.
New item discovery that won’t slow down. Nearly 7,000 new items have joined our assortment since the pandemic hit. Contactless bulk selections, including KeHE’s exclusive brands, MADE•WITH™ & Cadia®, including additions to our white-label repack program to give your customers confidence in store.
Transparent communication is key. Protecting the safety of our employees and customers is at the forefront of every decision we make. Therefore, upon learning of reported cases, we notify our involved partners as soon as possible.
