As new COVID-19 statewide regulations in California are put in place, Bolthouse Farms remains committed to delivering and keeping this critical industry at work and will continue to serve our customers coast to coast.
"These are uncertain and tumultuous times that we are facing together as a company, a state, a country and the world. We want to be sure that our employees and others in the agriculture industry understand the regulations set forth in California and how they affect our business. As defined by the Governor of California, our business is an essential service, and all employees that are currently reporting to work are able to do so and will need to do so under these new regulations.
"Agriculture is one of the 16 critical infrastructure industries that the California Governor detailed under the new shelter in place order imposed on residents of the state. We must ensure that our consumers continue to have access to fresh healthy produce. It is our job – together – to stay true to this mission and support each other in this difficult time," said Jeff Dunn, Chief Executive Officer, Bolthouse Farms.
Bolthouse Farms will continue to monitor the situation, abide by state and federal guidelines and put employees first.
