A Message from Curt Vossen, President and CEO

The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has presented all of us with an unprecedented, unfamiliar, and unique situation. What is particularly challenging is how quickly it has developed and continues to evolve. In light of these remarkable times, we are taking remarkable considerations, responses, and actions. We realize the importance of communicating the measures we are taking to ensure the safety and well-being of our people and customers and the continuity of our operations.
 
As an agricultural company and food manufacturer, the business we do is essential to the global supply of food. We move food products from where they are produced, processed, and packaged to the people who expect and rely on them. We are essential to a broader group of people than just us. This is why Richardson will continue to operate its head office, agri-business locations, plants, and terminals to the best of our ability while considering the health, well-being, and security of our people, customers, suppliers, and communities.
 
We have implemented measures to minimize the risk and spread of the coronavirus at all of our locations. As news comes in, we are monitoring information from public health authorities and governments, and are taking the steps needed to reduce risk.
 
The solutions we are exploring at this time are not one size fits all — as we value our people’s unique situations — and will tailor plans to be responsive to specific and particular needs. We will always strive to find middle ground that is sensible, responsible, and supportive of our people, our customers, and the ongoing business.
 
While we do not have all of the answers at this moment, we are dedicated to making decisions that are reasonable, honourable, and practical to support this business and keep it going to the best of our ability. If circumstances change and we need to make adjustments, we will do so with great consideration for the people who have helped us get to where we are.

This is an undeniably difficult situation, and we thank all of those committed to the collective betterment of our health and security. We will get through this and will do so together.
