At Triumph Foods, the health and safety of our staff is a top priority and we are committed to actions that proactively demonstrate this value. Further, as a leading supplier of food to our nation, we recognize our designation as part of the critical infrastructure of essential services that ensures a continued supply of food for our country during this pandemic. The company continues to follow the guidance provided by the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Triumph is continuously engaged with local health officials and has initiated a host of changes at the facility in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, including, but not limited to:

  • Increased staffing to provide intensified sanitation and disinfection processes throughout the facility.
  • Communication of CDC-recommended protocols and practices.
  • Increased lunch and break seating space during breaks and lunch periods.
  • Relaxed attendance policies.
  • Adjusted break and lunch times for certain departments to enhance employee distancing in common areas.
  • Providing wage support for COVID-19 related time away from work.
  • Provided face coverings to all employees.
  • Organizing increased frequency of bulk pork sales at wholesale prices for employees (in addition to daily specials in the cafeteria).
  • Providing temporary bonus pay for completed work schedules during April.
  • Offering alternative work shift opportunities within the facility.
  • Donating pork to Second Harvest Food Bank, Open Door Food Kitchen and Interserv pantries for those in need.
  • Installed plexiglass dividers to enhance social distancing and separation of employees during breaks and lunch periods.
  • Mandatory temperature screening of all employees prior to entering facility.

We are proud of the teamwork and commitment being demonstrated by the Triumph staff, its suppliers and truck drivers that continue to ensure the stability of food supply to the nation during the pandemic. We also encourage our team to share any concerns they have about practices as we continue to make necessary adjustments to protect their safety while also balancing the service needs required by our business.

As we have throughout the pandemic, we will share this information with our employees and post in common areas and breakrooms. We feel it is important to keep every employee updated, especially during these challenging and unpredictable times.

Triumph Foods is committed to remaining vigilant to adopt new ideas and navigate these challenges together while providing over 18 million servings of food per day.
