LOS ANGELES, CA - Companies across the supply chain have shown unwavering strength in the wake of a changing world. Progressive Produce has been working tirelessly to ensure that fresh produce is brought to market for both its customers and the consumers they serve. In order to thank the employees that remain on the frontlines of Progressive’s operations, the company wanted to extend a heartwarming “thank you” in the form of a video.

Jim Leimkuhler, Chief Executive Officer, Progressive Produce"We have an unwavering commitment to deliver excellence during this critical time. We are proud to say that Progressive's mission has never before shined so brightly. We will all get through this together. In the meantime, keep yourself safe, your family safe, and we look forward to brighter days ahead for all," stated Jim Leimkuhler, CEO.

Many Progressive employees that can work from home have pitched in—no matter the time of day—to take orders, pay bills, and keep the company’s systems safe so that its customers are taken care of. The true Progressive heroes, a press release noted, are those who cannot work from home, such as forklift drivers, packers, warehouse supervisors, maintenance staff, and food safety professionals. These employees have taken on the responsibility that comes with being on the frontlines of fresh to keep the nation's food supply flowing.

In the video, Progressive Produce extended its thanks to the following:

  • All of the farmers who supply the fresh, healthy produce that is needed during our country's most challenging time
  • All of the truck drivers who have worked to bring it to Progressive Produce's dock and yours
  • All of the front-line employees at retail stores who have worked tirelessly to stock the shelves and check out the consumers
  • All the workers servicing the foodservice sector of Progressive's business who are working tirelessly to keep restaurants in business as they move to take-out and drive-through meals only
