At Yasso the health and safety of our employees, our partners and our consumers is our top priority and we would like to take this opportunity to provide you with an update on actions we are taking to ensure we are conducting business safely and thoughtfully during this time.
Our Employees: All Yasso employees have been mandated to work from home effective March 13th with all business travel cancelled. And while cross-team collaboration is a cornerstone of our company culture, we are innovating and thriving in our new remote environments with connectivity enabled by technology, plus a dash of creativity.
Our Partners: Our retail customers, manufacturers, suppliers, warehousing and transportation partners, all of which are essential businesses during this pandemic, are actively following all guidelines and directives as information becomes available from the CDC, FDA and industry experts, as well as their respective state and local governments. Currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19. We are working tirelessly to support our partners in all capacities as we weather these current challenges together.
Our Consumers: Whether a Yasso loyalist or a recent froyo convert, our consumers are the fabric of this brand. And we will continue to deliver you the dessert you love and look forward to. We understand that shopping for Yasso may be more difficult these days with grocery store shelves depleted. We humbly ask for your patience and understanding as we work with our partners to replenish. Wherever you choose to shop, know how grateful we are for your support.
Our Communities: We are also actively working with our local communities via our Game On! Foundation to provide resources for those most negatively impacted during this time. When our sampling trucks were sitting idle due to our summer tour’s cancellation, we switched gears to still drive a positive impact. Our fleet of trucks have been lent out to Metro Ministries (MM), a group assisting the Food Bank of the Rockies and the Denver Housing Authority (DHA) to provide meals to families in need. In just one day, the volunteers packed up the trucks and served meals to 150 families. DHA handles the door to door distribution once on site, and MM took lead on getting the goods there. Talk about celebrating goodness!
