The food industry’s top priorities must be employee safety and ensuring food consistently reaches communities. Our CEO shares our perspective on COVID and its impact on our sector and the world. We'll get through this together.

BOSTON, Mass., April 2020 - I hope everyone is staying safe and well in these extraordinary times. It’s clear the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic will impact every part of peoples’ lives and businesses’ operations. In our world, we are seeing it test the food supply chain and raise new questions about the way people think about feeding themselves and their families.

We are heartened by the efforts of our friends, partners, and former colleagues who are responding to the crisis. Food companies are taking strong measures to keep their employees safe while ensuring people all over the world can get the food they need. Many are also going above and beyond to donate food and funds to those most in need. Thank you for keeping us nourished in so many ways.

At Motif FoodWorks, Inc. we are ensuring our own employees are able to maintain safety and balance. We are at our respective homes but working together and working hard. And we are more motivated than ever to use science and technology to mitigate situations like this in the future and help feed the world in any circumstance. I am confident we’ll get through this together and I look forward to engaging with everyone in the food community soon.
