An Open Letter to Canadians Regarding COVID-19 from the Food and Household Product Manufacturers

We will help Canada's largest manufacturing workforce stay healthy and support our colleagues to stay home from work if they get sick.

We know that the food and household goods we all choose feel more essential to daily life than ever before.  Finding those products on store shelves is important to you, and safely making the products you need is our top priority.

Representing Canada's most trusted brands and the 300,000 people who work making the food and household products Canadians rely on every day, now more than ever, we want you to know: 

WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK.

We couldn't be prouder that the products we make are helping Canadians across the country - from medical heroes in our hospitals to every day heroes working hard to help their families and communities stay strong in these difficult times. 

It is understandable that people are concerned about finding the products they need.  But, we are confident we have and make enough for everyone. 

Our commitments are simple:

—We will help Canada's largest manufacturing workforce stay healthy and support our colleagues to stay home from work if they get sick.

—We will continue to uphold the most stringent standards for personal, equipment, and product hygiene and safety in our facilities. 

—We will keep making the food and household goods you need and working with government and grocers to make sure the products you need are stocked on store shelves. 

We work with and thank: Farmers who grow the agricultural products we make into finished goods. Our team members who make the food and household products you need. Transportation networks who deliver these essential supplies. Partners in grocery, drug, and convenience stores who help us get those products on store shelves. 

WE'RE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER – 
FROM FARM, FACTORY, AND STORE TO YOUR FRONT DOOR.
