Earlier this week, Vice President Mike Pence applauded the work of the food and agriculture communities to keep our food supply chain safe and running on time in his comments during a briefing on the coronavirus pandemic.
Access to safe, healthy, plentiful food in this time of crisis is arguably more important than ever.
The corn refining industry stands with Vice President Pence and citizens across the entire country in giving heartfelt thanks to workers on the front lines. That’s why we released a new video calling attention to the work of not just corn refiners, but the entire food and agriculture community:
During this pandemic, food and agriculture workers—farmers to food manufacturers, processors, grocers, and truckers—are putting in long hours and hard work to keep Americans fed. Corn refiners have stepped up their efforts at plants across the country, implementing increased safety measures to ensure the necessary pieces of the food supply chain are abundant.
But it’s more than just food, corn products also help produce vital medical supplies, including latex gloves, hand sanitizer, and liquid hand soap.
We join the entire nation in applauding workers throughout the country as we navigate uncertain times together. The agriculture and food processing communities are keeping grocery shelves stocked when Americans depend on us most.
