ADM and COVID-19
Maintaining continuity in the entire food supply chain is essential now more than ever to ensure people continue to have access to the nutrition they need. ADM plays a critical role throughout that supply chain, and our front line workers have been working tirelessly to keep operations running throughout this challenging time. Our main priority remains taking the necessary steps to ensure a safe working environment for those colleagues as we maintain business operations.
Throughout the pandemic, we have taken the potential risks of COVID-19 very seriously, and we are committed to continuing to do our part to keep our colleagues, families and the communities where we operate safe. We have business continuity plans in place for various scenarios at each of our 800 facilities and are prepared to respond if we see potential impacts on our business operations.
We are continuing to prohibit all non-critical travel for employees and contractors and all non-business-critical visitation to our facilities, and we currently have a reduced staff model in place in some regions, as appropriate. We have established clear protocols to monitor and test for any suspected infections, along with stringent contact tracing, quarantine and cleaning processes in case of a positive test result.
We are evaluating processes and procedures as vaccines become available and are putting in plans in place to ensure we will be able to bring colleagues working remotely back to the workplace in a safe manner when the timing is right.
We continue to communicate regularly with our employees and customers through various channels as the situation continues to evolve.
