Dear Valued Customers:
Charles Bowman and Company (“CBC”) is a leading distributor in North America for ingredients in the human and animal nutrition businesses. CBC supplies hundreds of customers, and plays a critical role in feeding and supplementing the world.
On March 19, 2020, President Trump issued an updated Coronavirus Guidance for America. The guidance states that:
“If you work in a critical infrastructure industry, as defined by the Department of Homeland Security, such as healthcare services and pharmaceutical and food supply, you have a special responsibility to maintain your normal work schedule”.
This is consistent with state and local mandates, which have similarly exempted the food and agriculture sectors from shelter-in-place orders. In accordance with the President’s mandate, our North American operations will continue to run, and we are taking specific actions to ensure the health and safety of our workforce.
Our primary concern is for the health and safety of our employees, customers, business partners, and their families during this difficult time and we will continue to distribute quality products as long as we can safely do so. Demand is exceptionally strong at this point and we are doing our best to meet the needs of our customers. We have taken the necessary precautions as noted by the CDC as well as enhanced our social distancing within our operations.
We appreciate how much all of our business partners trust and rely on CBC and we will continue to take the necessary precautions as noted by the Federal, State, and Local governments.
CBC Executive Team
