VACAVILLE, Calif., May 26, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- As we work toward a recovery phase of the COVID-19 pandemic, Mariani Packing Company is incredibly proud of our Community Members who have risen to the occasion to ensure that we're able to maintain an uninterrupted supply of great-tasting and healthy food for consumers across our country and around the world. Mariani, an Essential Business and part of the Food Chain Supply, stands committed to fulfilling our mission. Driving this effort has been our Front- line Production & Logistics Teams who have answered the call – allowing our facilities to run 6 days a week, 24 hours a day to ensure that we remain fully open and operational to meet the historic record demand we've experienced as our customers work to keep store shelves full, and people nourished. "The unwavering commitment by these dedicated Team Members have made them our Food Heroes," said George Sousa, Jr., family member and President of Mariani Packing Company. "In my 40 plus years working with the company, I have never been so proud of our Team Members. They are a daily inspiration to us all." Contributing to their success has been their vigilance in enforcing and adhering to the guidelines established by the Center for Disease Control (CDC), as well as those issued by Local and State Authorities to protect all of their fellow Community Members' health at work and home. To date, the Team's commitment to safety & sanitation has resulted in zero confirmed cases of COVID-19 amongst our Community Members who work throughout our five production facilities in two states. Mariani has honored these Food Heroes with recognition for their dedication and service.
