Vulnerabilities in our food supply chain as exposed by COVID-19 must be addressed to support greater food safety and security. Our facility has a great emphasis on hygiene, packaging and processing. ESG’s Biosafety Design will include MERV-17 air filtration, implementation of Biosafety Levels (BSL), and operational practices including the use of automation/AI to augment workers to maintain hygiene, personal protective equipment, automated processing and packaging.
The manner in which food is packaged is one of the key factors to minimizing the potential spread of pathogens like COVID-19, as well as preserving freshness and flavor. We will use all biodegradable packaging, including biodegradable plastics.
