Safety & Sanitation Protocol
- Health and safety is our top priority right now. Rest assured that we are taking absolutely every precaution, with adherence to the most up-to-date food safety guidelines outlined by the CDC, the FDA, and the Vermont Department of Agriculture, Food & Markets.
- According to the CDC: "There is currently no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food."
- Even so, we are taking this very seriously.
- All prepared foods are produced in our licensed commercial kitchen space, which is not shared with anyone or open to the public.
- As ingredients are delivered to our kitchen, they are left outside, and every item is sanitized before it enters.
- The kitchen is spotlessly clean. We received a 100/100 at our most recent surprise inspection by the Vermont Department of Health. All handles, knobs, surfaces are sanitized regularly throughout the day
- Single-use gloves are used through every step of the process, and changed between each task.
- Our delivery drivers wear masks whenever they are on your property, and when they have a chance of encountering anyone at all.
- Thomas and his kitchen crew have been practicing extreme social distancing, and are feeling healthy and fabulous.
- All food production will be immediately stopped at the first sign of any possible symptoms.
