Since our very first batch of Seed Bars, our focus has always been on supporting our community and providing safe, nutritious foods that you can rely on. As we all work together to navigate the changing landscape of COVID-19, we want you to know that our commitment to our customers, our community, and to our team has not changed.
While our HQ team is working remotely during this time, our Bakery and Fulfillment teams remain open and operational. Our online store (88acres.com) will remain open and orders will continue to ship as normal. To make this possible, we’ve taken additional precautions to ensure the safety of our products and team members, including:
- Supplementing our normal high standards of sanitation with increased frequency of cleaning throughout our Bakery.
- Separating our day and evening shifts to prioritize social distancing and reduce the number of people present in our Bakery at one time.
- Starting each shift with a visual and verbal spot check of health and well-being for all Bakery team members.
Additionally, we want to make sure that our entire team is focused on their health and the health of their household, not on their paycheck. So we’ve offered unlimited sick leave for all Bakery and Fulfillment employees as well as flexibility for families who are managing care for loved ones at home.
We feel that keeping our Bakery open is the right thing to do because maintaining access to healthy, shelf-stable, and allergy-friendly food during this difficult time is critical. We’re grateful for the trust and support you’ve given us as we all make our way through these uncertain times. As always, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our social media channels with any questions.
