To Our Loyal Customers:
During these uncertain times, Nueske's is committed to keeping you informed by detailing steps we are taking to keep our employees and customers safe during the current COVID-19 event.
We would like to share the current information regarding proactive steps we have taken to minimize service disruptions to you, our customer, and to keep our employees, partners, and products as safe as possible:
We are committed to keeping current with all local, state, and government mandates regarding COVID-19, as they develop
Although Wisconsin's 10-person-or-less gathering rule is not being mandated for manufacturers, we are observing it by taking the following steps:
Using telecommunications in place of meetings over 10 persons
Increased physical distancing of seating in common areas such as break rooms, production facilities, and office spaces
We are limiting visitors and screening any essential service people, vendors, or visitors who require entry, using a custom screening questionnaire
Wipes and/or sanitizers are available in our common areas
We are committed to educating employees on healthy behaviors and processes per CDC guidelines
We are working closely with our supply chain to do our best to mitigate potential service disruptions
Regarding our scheduling:
We have suspended our attendance program to allow flexibility during this time
We are developing a flexible schedule to allow us to keep operations running smoothly
Any employee who exhibits symptoms will not be allowed in the workplace. Symptoms include: fever, cough, sore throat, shortness of breath. Any employee showing these symptoms, who is already in the workplace, will be immediately sent home.
We are accustomed to operating in an already-stringent food safety environment, giving us a substantial head-start in dealing with sanitation and cleanliness. Members of our Sanitation and Quality Assurance teams are well-versed in areas relating to disinfecting, sanitizing, and cleaning our facilities accordingly, in addition to keeping our food products safe for all to enjoy.
The last point, above, is of paramount importance to us now and always, as it is part of Nueske's Applewood Smoked Meats' core values. We work hard to provide you with the very best food safety.
