A MESSAGE FROM OUR PRESIDENT MICHAEL KIOLBASSA
You may have heard about the meat shortages that are taking place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. We are happy to report that during this time we have been able to keep grocery shelves stocked. However, these shortages have led to high meat prices. Because meat is the primary ingredient in our products, we have had to temporarily adjust our pricing. You may soon experience price increases at your local grocery store. We are monitoring meat costs and pledge to you that we will lower the price of our sausage as soon as prices stabilize.
We know that this is not an ideal time for a price increase, as so many people are struggling. We had a choice: 1) use ingredients of lesser quality and keep prices the same, or, 2) continue to use the same, quality ingredients we have used since 1949 while slightly increasing the sales price. The decision was easy. We will always choose quality.
There has been much recent discussion over the shortages in the meat supply chain due to COVID-19 and those shortages are real. However, our team is working together to minimize any shortages of our products to our retailers and we wanted to let you know some facts about the availability of our products.
We are grateful to our many loyal customers and excited about the many new customers that we have reached recently. We welcome any comments or feedback that you’d like to send us and look forward to getting back to spending time with friends and family.
Update: April 10, 2020
We have framed our response to COVID-19 on three key objectives:
Lastly, we are committed to doing our part in the community to support the guidelines from our city, county, state and federal officials so that we can emerge from this crisis as quickly as possible. We are truly grateful for their leadership and guidance during this difficult period. We are confident that we will emerge from this crisis stronger as a company and country.
