Official Covid-19 Response

Updated December 2020

An Important Update...

Our leadership team at Superior has taken preventative action to prioritize everyone’s health—from our associates to our partners and community. Here is how we are responding to this unprecedented, ever evolving challenge:

Per our request, the Health Department came for an assessment of our Canton, Ohio processing plant. 
They confirmed with us that not only are we taking every preventative measure we could, but we are also the first business in Stark County to request their services. We, as a company, are taking every possible preventable measure as a manufacturing company to keep our essential workers safe.

At Superior, our top priority is the health and safety of our team members, their families and our community. We take this responsibility very seriously and are doing everything we can. We put in place protective steps at our Canton, Ohio plant that meet or exceed CDC  guidance for preventing COVID-19 including:

  • Wellness health screening of team members each time they arrive at our facilities, checking for symptoms and taking temperatures. 

  • Supplying and requiring protective facial coverings to every team member.  

  • The use of face shields for team members where workstation barriers cannot physically be implemented. 

  • Social distance monitors stationed throughout our facilities during all shifts to help ensure adherence to safety protocols and social distancing.

 We have taken preventative measures outlined by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that include social-distancing practices and frequent and deep cleaning at our facilities to maintain a healthy environment.

This is critical because Superior Dairy products and services are vital to our customers and the world—from the farms, to your table, dairy is an essential industry. Our customers, communities and other stakeholders are counting on us to keep industry in motion, and we will. 

We are constantly working to produce the products our consumers know and love, across the country. By remaining responsive and staying informed, we will get through this challenge together.
