A Message From Our Founders

Mar 13, 2020

Dear Patrons,

We wanted to take a moment to express our care and gratitude for all of you, and to let you know the precautions we are taking considering the latest developments in COVID-19 information. Our priority remains to ensure the health and wellness of all patrons and staff while maintaining our commitment to producing the highest quality, organic juices and foods that support a healthy immune system and overall healthy lifestyle.

In our retail stores we are taking the following precautions:

  • We have stopped the use of dine-in dishes and cups as well as reusable mugs, using only recyclable or compostable take-away containers
  • Enacted protocols to sanitize all high contact areas such as door and fridge handles and high-traffic countertops on an hourly basis
  • Instructed staff to stay home at any sign of illness, symptoms of COVID-19 or recent travel to medium or high-risk areas. We will do our best to maintain normal operations during this time, but as a result you may see some gaps in our operating hours as we assess and address these issues in real-time. We apologize for any inconvenience this causes.
  • To further reduce the risk of transmission in our stores and production facility, effective immediately, we will no longer accept cash payments OR used glass bottles and jars for return and reuse. We will restart these programs as soon as enough information becomes available to ensure that it does not create undue risk.

At our production facility, we are adhering strictly to our daily sanitization schedules and preventative control measures defined by our Food Safety Program. We are complying with all the guidance available from the CFIA, CDC and other health professionals. We have increased our frequency of sanitation in high risk areas and our staff are trained to high levels of personal hygiene and uniform. Our production and distribution teams have also been instructed to stay home at any sign of illness, symptoms of COVID-19 or recent travel to medium or high-risk areas.

As members of the communities that our stores are in, we also feel the stress of the current environment, and want to do everything in our power to mitigate risk, while also continuing to contribute to the health and wellness of our community.

Wishing all of you and your loved ones good health during these stressful times and beyond.

Sincerely, 

Village Juicery
