The impact of COVID-19 seems to be growing every day, and the situation is shifting rapidly. Our hearts go out to all those who are affected by this pandemic. We wanted to share some precautionary measures The Scottish Grocer is taking to ensure the safety of the orders we are shipping. The health and wellness of our customers and partners are our top priority.
Please note that while we have seen accelerating demand for several products, we are able to meet your needs.
We have been preparing for the impacts of COVID-19 since early in the month and have followed the World Health Organization (WHO) and US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) best practices and guidance.
Per a UPS email sent 3/17, Many people are asking the same question: Is it safe to receive and handle a parcel shipment? The WHO and CDC have stated that the likelihood of catching the COVID-19 virus by touching cardboard or other shipping containers is low.
While The Scottish Grocer does not handle, prepare/ produce or package any food items that have not been sealed, as a top line initiative sanitation procedures in our office and warehouse environment have been strengthened to ensure the safety of all items that are shipped.
If you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact us using the green tab in the bottom left corner.
