CALIFORNIA– Made In Nature, the creator of Dried Fruit, Figgy Pops, and other delicious, organic Supersnacks, has donated $80,000 worth of their snacks to two charities addressing food insecurity: Feed The Children and Fresno Rescue Mission. Made In Nature’s production facilities are located in Fresno and Selma, California, a state hit particularly hard by the COVID-19 pandemic.
At a time when many food companies are struggling to keep up with consumer demand, Made In Nature’s Fresno-based production team is working tirelessly in order to fulfill orders for stores and on-line consumers.
“We really appreciate the hard work and sacrifices our production team has been making during this time. While many employees across the country have been asked to work from home, that simply isn’t possible for food manufacturing teams,” explained Susan Thanavaro, Made In Nature Director of Marketing. “We wanted to show our gratitude for these team members in several ways and one way is to nourish people directly impacted in their community.”
The company, who is currently hiring for open positions in their Fresno-area manufacturing facilities, has taken additional measures to ensure their employees stay healthy while on the job including physical distancing, limiting numbers of employees in various areas, mandatory masks, increased sanitary support and as always gloves and hair nets. They have also increased wages for operations employees during this time.
For plant employees with children, the company has taken some additional steps to provide support including purchasing Chrome books for children who needed them in order to complete online schoolwork. The company is also helping with childcare and internet expenses as needed. And, they are providing grocery store gift cards for employee families.
