COVID-19 Update

Updates on coronavirus (COVID-19) Outbreak: VKI resumes its activities

VKI resumes its activities on May 11


Dear customers,

In accordance with the Quebec government's directives regarding the reopening of manufacturing facilities, the VKI team will resume operations on Monday, May 11.  The health and safety of our employees being the priority, the return will be done in a gradual manner. This will allow us to implement the necessary preventive measures and allow our employees to adopt them so that they can work safely.

As a member of the Keurig Dr Pepper family, we are fortunate to be able to benefit from the learnings of the Environmental Health & Safety team and to apply the enhanced hygiene and cleaning protocols that have helped Keurig Canada’s coffee roasting and packaging plant to continue its essential operations over the past few weeks. By enabling social distancing, the integration of hygiene measures into our routines, and transparent and continuous communication with our employees, these processes will help us prevent the spread of the virus in the workplace

Here are some of the planned measures:

  • Delimitation of work areas allowing social distancing and limiting contacts between colleagues to small groups.
  • Implementation of rigorous and regular infrastructure cleaning processes.
  • Application of hygienic measures such as regular hand washing and the use of masks.
  • Close monitoring of employees' health through preshift questionnaires and daily temperature checks.

In the short term, it is possible that adaptation to these new ways of working may result in slight delivery delays. Of course, if this is the case, our customer service team will be pleased to assist you and answer any questions you may have. We will do everything in our power to limit any inconvenience, and we thank you for your trust and patience as we get used to our new production realities.

Thank you for your understanding and we look forward to serving you again very soon.

Best regards,

The Management Team
