COVID-19 – Beck Flavors Update 3/19/2020

Dear Customers and Partners,

There has been an increase in the documented cases of Covid-19 in the Saint Louis metropolitan area. It is out of an abundance of caution that Beck Flavors put a shelter in place order out to most of our employees yesterday evening. This was done in the hopes of stopping the spread of the Covid-19 virus and to keep our employees safe during this pandemic.

Our production teams, production management, shipping and receiving, regulatory and our QA teams are working at our facility still to continue the flow of orders going out of our facility. This will continue until such time that the government mandates we close that facility, someone in that group tests positive for Covid-19 or until management decides that it is unsafe for us to continue to operate that facility.

Additionally, our R&D lab is shut down for now. Unfortunately, that means that no R&D samples can go out at this time.

As always, if you have questions, comments or concerns, please feel free to call or email me. Please stay safe and healthy.

Sincerely,

Matt Carr President mcarr@beckflavors.com 314-303-8970
