2020 YEAR IN REVIEW: Our Commitment to Safety Kept the Food Supply Chain Moving

December 16, 2020

This year, our most important value impacted the world.

At Lineage, everything we do starts with safety. Of the six values that guide our organization, we consciously put SAFE first. The successful sustainability of the global food supply chain depends on keeping our Team Members, facilities and the communities in which we live and work safe. That’s how we ensure our customers’ products can safely and efficiently reach tables across the globe.  

This year, our commitment to safety proved to be even more important. When the COVID-19 pandemic hit, developing an immediate and long-term response was critical. In partnership with experts from the Institute for Global Health and Infectious Disease (IGHID), we worked quickly to develop an operational safety playbook that was implemented across our global network. We collaborated throughout the year with top doctors and researchers to adjust our procedures in alignment with the latest medical news and scientific data. As a result, the global food supply chain remained strong.

Dominic DiCarlo, Vice President of Safety and Compliance at Lineage, attributed this to the incredible commitment our Team Members have to our “safety first” culture. “People were motivated to embrace the challenge and recognized the critical role they play in the food supply chain. Lineage didn’t shy away from this process, we excelled throughout it,” DiCarlo said.
