With the continued expansion of the COVID-19 pandemic, it has introduced a lot of uncertainty into the marketplace for both consumers and businesses. As the supplier of refrigerated cartons for global food and beverage companies and the supplier of paperboard and paper for both food and non-food grade companies, we take seriously our role in these important supply chains. Evergreen Packaging’s top priority is to protect the health of our employees and customers, as well as every person who uses our products, and to minimize any disruption in supplying products to our customers.
The Department of Homeland Security has defined certain businesses as “Critical Infrastructure Industries,” including forest products (paper), food supply and food packaging. Evergreen Packaging’s operations, as well as our supply chain, fall under this designation. Our PlantCarton® packaging, specifically, is essential to protecting food and beverage products. Consumers trust our package to help protect nutrients and extend shelf life, as they seek to comply with local quarantine protocols. Our customers, which include many global brands, trust our package to protect the product inside during food processing and throughout the supply chain, from their plants to consumers’ refrigerators.
In light of the uncertainty about the availability of important products, we are working to maintain our production to meet critical needs of our customers who provide important food products to consumers and to meet our responsibilities as good corporate citizens to protect our employees and the communities that we serve. We will continue to closely monitor developments in the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and vigilantly prepare for contingencies, for the purpose of seeking to maintain full time production at our paper and paperboard mills and at our carton converting facilities.
Our focused efforts toward preparedness include:
As a food packaging supplier for customers who are meeting a critical need for consumers, we appreciate the trust our customers and consumers place in us. We are committed to delivering reliably and communicating in the event that there is any unavoidable disruption. We appreciate the opportunity to work with customers and consumers to make a difference during these challenging times.
