As Americans look to the future with uncertainty during the COVID-19 pandemic, one thing is clear – families will be preparing more meals at home than ever before for the next several weeks. Because of this, shoppers are facing empty food shelves at their local grocery stores. As a leader in the corn-milling industry, LifeLine Foods recognizes and embraces the important role in making sure people have access to safe, quality food as America navigates these unprecedented times.
“We take our role to feed America very seriously. That’s why we’re committed to ensuring the continuity of our business, and the availability of our products to our customers, and ultimately consumers across the nation,” said LifeLine Foods President and CEO Kevin Kelly. “To date, we’ve been able to maintain our supply and will continue to work hard to help our partners exceed the expectations of consumers who are facing critical shortages.”
The U.S. government has identified the supply of food as a critical infrastructure and has given food manufacturers special guidance on their responsibility to maintain normal production.
“It is clear to us that the food supply in the U.S. is more than sufficient, and we’re taking a variety of actions to meet the shifting increase in demand now, and to ensure a steady supply moving forward,” added Kelly. “We are also taking steps to ensure that LifeLine employees can continue to work in the safest environment possible to keep up with that demand.”
