The Government of Canada has determined that food manufacturing and grocery stores are considered essential services because of the all important words that our regular customers constantly hear us throw around: “LOCAL FOOD SECURITY”. The Pandemic is showing EVERYONE exactly why we believe local food security is the most important thing of all especially when your food supply chains break down or show their inherent weaknesses.
When the pandemic first hit, we were extremely concerned that supply chains would break and we would be completely shut down. Well, that’s not happened, yet. Thank our lucky stars, and although our two largest customers expressed outright terror over pending sales, we expect that this sudden economic downturn will not stop us, although it has slowed us down, a little.
Last week we were contacted by a local farmer who suddenly needed a market for more local organic greenhouse tomatoes, their market having suddenly dried up. We are in need of tomatoes, for the salsas we’ve been selling through Lufa Farms, among other things, so this was like manna from heaven, perfect timing. We had just launched the salsa for sale at Lufa Farms, and because of their unique shopping and delivery experience, which is perfectly suited to Isolation shopping. has been slammed with orders and has placed new and unexpected orders. #Blessings
Since our online buying customers are all ramping up their business, it’s a really good time to let everyone know that during this time they can still get our products.
As you may know, the Peppermaster and I are putting all of our personal energies into planking that curve at the same time as continuing to make food products. And it’s working, folks! You’re all doing so great, staying home and avoiding each other! Thank you all. From the bottom of my heart. I have isolated at home avoiding all but outside open air contact with anyone and every contact maintains the distance of 6 feet; 2 meters; Sid the Kid’s hockey stick.
The Peppermaster still needs to brave the wholesale food suppliers to make sure we have fresh supplies to continue operating. Fortunately he understands food security and contamination vectors. All hail the Peppermaster.
