Food companies, including Weston Foods, Schreiber Foods, and Tyson were among 12 companies that earned top Shipper of Choice awards this yearWeston FoodsDuring the height of the COVID-19 pandemic when consumers were panic-buying food products, Weston Foods, a family-owned company headquartered in Etobicoke, Ontario, stepped up to recognize its carriers that were on the frontlines delivering essential goods throughout Canada and the U.S. As businesses and states sought to curb the spread of the Coronavirus and closed rest areas and truck stop restaurants and restroom facilities, Bryan Connell, manager of frozen transportation, distribution and warehousing of Weston Foods in the U.S., said he alerted their 3PLS to the dire conditions truck drivers were facing out on the road."We notified them that these drivers can't even pull over to use the restroom, take a shower or find a meal," Connell told FreightWaves. "We let them know that if a Weston Foods load showed up a little late, not to mention it to the driver, but to send us the bill. Most of our 3PL Warehouse we partnered with took a step further and waived late fees altogether for our carriers during the pandemic. Some ever had had water, snacks, hand sanitizer and clean portable restrooms waiting for drivers who couldn't go inside and use their break rooms because of COVID-19"Their focus on carriers is one of the reasons Weston Foods was awarded a top spot in this year's FreightWaves Shipper of Choice Awards.Weston Foods works with a network of around 40 carriers that deliver private label food products across Canada and the U.S. "I think the carriers will remember that we appreciated what they were doing for us to deliver these loads and that COVID-19 didn't impact our service to our customers," Connell said. Schreiber FoodsGlobal dairy giant Schreiber Foods, headquartered in Green Bay, Wisconsin, was again named as a top Shipper of Choice.Employee-owned Schreiber Foods produces cheese, yogurt and other dairy products and has more than 30 facilities globally, including 14 locations in the United States.Educating employees about hours of service and the tight clock truck drivers must follow is essential to building carrier relationships. "A driver might say he's running tight on hours, and our team actually understands what that means," said Peter Andrews, Schreiber's supply chain manager for transportation, in a FreightWaves article about being a Shipper of Choice in 2019.Tyson FoodsTyson Foods, Inc. (NYSE: TSN), headquartered in Springdale, Arkansas, is one of the world's largest food companies with 141,000 employees globally, posting more than $42 billion in sales annually. As a way to say thank you to its 116,000 employees and truck drivers that are "feeding the nation" during the COVID-19 pandemic, Tyson announced in March that it plans to allocate approximately $60 million in bonuses to eligible "frontline workers and Tyson truckers."Tyson has a fleet of approximately 2,900 drivers and 2,700 power units.Shipper of Choice winner Tyson Foods.

Chinese demands that overseas suppliers guarantee their food shipments are free of the novel coronavirus are causing some shippers to forego the China trade, an industry group representing U.S. produce growers said on Friday. Western Growers, which represents companies that produce half of U.S. fresh fruits, vegetables and tree nuts, confirmed that many of its members had received such requests from Chinese authorities. "It's changing how some of our growers are reacting to the marketplace," said Dennis Nuxoll, the trade group's vice president of federal government affairs.

The families of three workers who died after contracting the coronavirus in an Iowa meat plant outbreak sued Tyson Foods and its top executives Thursday, saying the company knowingly put employees at risk and lied to keep them on the job.
(Bloomberg) -- U.S. health and agricultural authorities issued thinly veiled criticism of new demands from China for food-exporting companies to sign documents stating that they comply with safety standards to prevent transmission of Covid-19.“Efforts by some countries to restrict global food exports related to Covid-19 transmission are not consistent with the known science of transmission,” U.S. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue and FDA Commissioner Stephen Hahn said in a joint statement Wednesday.That’s in line with advice from experts, who have continued to say that food poses little risk of spreading the coronavirus.It’s the latest rebuff to China, which has issued warning shots to global exporters dealing with outbreaks among employees. The nation issued a ban on poultry shipments from a plant owned by Tyson Foods Inc. after the company reported infections at the site in Arkansas. Meanwhile, meat companies in the U.K., Germany and Brazil have voluntarily halted some shipments amid positive cases, according to China’s customs authorities.An outbreak in Beijing was first traced to a chopping board used by a seller of imported salmon, but then the country’s National Health Commission said there was no evidence showing the fish is either the origin or intermediate host for the virus.Still, salmon was removed from supermarkets in major Chinese cities.Perdue and Hahn said in their statement there is “no evidence that people can contract Covid-19 from food or from food packaging.”While meat companies in Brazil and Europe have signed China’s requested affidavit showing a compliance to safety standards, many American exporters have so far been reluctant to take that step for fear of liability. Tyson Foods on Tuesday became the first major U.S. company to confirm it signed the certificate.Australia issued a statement dated Tuesday that cited the World Health Organization, saying that “transmission through food is highly unlikely and there is no evidence of this occurring with COVID-19 globally to date.”A spokesperson for the European Commission also said there’s no evidence food is a likely transmission source. If trade regulations don’t remain science-based, there could be a “global spiral” toward needless import controls and Covid-19 certification for food products, with “grave” consequences for food security and global trade.The commission said it remains confident that China will refrain from unjustified measures on imported food.The Chinese request isn’t aimed at imposing trade restrictions, according to people familiar with the matter. The requests are informal, and is to ease Chinese consumer concerns over the safety of imported products such as meat, one of the people said.But whether or not it was meant to target trade flows, the new demand could still end up being an impediment to shipments. That would further delay the $36.5 billion in farm purchases the Asian nation pledged under Beijing and Washington’s phase one trade deal.Chinese buyers are asking soybean and meat shippers to comply with safety regulations “to ensure that food imported into China is not contaminated with the Covid-19 virus,” according to the declaration seen by Bloomberg. The request was directed at “a wide variety of meats, seafood and other foodstuffs,” the U.S. Meat Export Federation said in a message to members.(Updates with EU statement in 10th and 11th paragraphs.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
(Bloomberg) -- The U.S.-China trade deal has just suffered a new setback.China wants international shippers of meat and soybeans to sign a document attesting their cargoes meet safety standards to ensure they aren’t contaminated with the novel coronavirus. That’s a step many American exporters have so far been reluctant to take for fear of liability, with Tyson Foods Inc. being the first to confirm it’s signed the certificate.The new demands from China could end up being an impediment to shipments, further delaying the $36.5 billion in farm purchases the Asian nation pledged under the phase one trade deal.The move comes even as the world’s major public health authorities say the virus isn’t foodborne, raising questions over why China is taking the action. It could also act as a non-tariff trade barrier, a tactic the Asian country has applied in the past with everything from American corn cargoes to Canadian canola.China’s request isn’t a move aimed at imposing trade restrictions, according to people familiar with the matter. The demand doesn’t target specific countries as it’s for all exporters, and aims to ease Chinese consumer concerns over the safety of imported food.“I believe this is simply a buyer seeking leverage,” said Chris Robinson, managing director of agriculture and commodities at TJM Institutional Services in Chicago. “They were notorious in the past for canceling shipments for various ‘infractions,’” he said referring to China.China’s Meat Fears Spill Over to Soy With Virus-Free RequestOn Sunday, China suspended poultry imports from a Tyson Foods plant where hundreds of employees tested positive for Covid-19, stoking concerns over the broader implications for U.S. and global meat exports. If shippers don’t sign the new affidavits, they could be subject to more bans.This comes just after China signaled last week it was getting ready to accelerate purchases of American farm goods to comply with the trade deal following recent talks with U.S. officials in Hawaii. Donald Trump has touted the deal as being a big boost to farmers, a key part of his base as he seeks re-election in November.China’s latest actions could just be the country “stirring the pot” ahead of the U.S. presidential elections in November, Robinson said.Traders are already on edge after a Trump official on Monday raised questions about the deal before the president himself said the agreement was “fully intact.” Rhetoric between the two countries has intensified recently. Trump employed a racist slur in referring to the pandemic as the “Kung flu” at a rally over the weekend in Oklahoma and the administration has been criticizing Beijing for saying it would impose contentious new national security legislation on Hong Kong.Chinese buyers are asking soybean and meat shippers to comply with safety regulations “to ensure that food imported into China is not contaminated with the Covid-19 virus,” according to the declaration seen by Bloomberg. The request was directed at “a wide variety of meats, seafood and other foodstuffs,” the U.S. Meat Export Federation said in a message to members.For shippers, there are many unknowns, including whether and how cargoes will be subjected to Covid-19 testing and what sanctions could be imposed if China says the shipments carried the virus. So far, U.S. exporters seem to be taking a conservative approach, signaling concerns over signing the document.Late Tuesday, Tyson confirmed it signed the statement declaring it is complying with Chinese laws and international food-safety standards.“We are very confident in the safety of our products and have put measures in place that are in full compliance with all applicable requirements, and have signed the certification on that basis,” Tyson said.Meanwhile, some competitors in rival Brazil including meat giants JBS SA, Marfrig Global Foods and BRF SA have agreed to sign. And Europe’s meat industry also received China’s call for letters to accompany cargoes and companies among its member states are trying to comply with the request, said Karsten Maier, secretary general of the European Livestock and Meat Trades Union. Danish Crown, a top pork exporter, has confirmed to China it complies with the food-safety standards, according to spokesman Jens Hansen.China, which so far has only purchased a fraction of the farm goods it promised to buy under the trade deal with the U.S., has a history of using non-tariff barriers to stifle shipments.That was the case with its tariff-rate quotas for crops including corn, wheat and rice, which led the U.S. to complain to the World Trade Organization. Genetically-modified crops have also been a big issue. In 2013, China rejected several cargoes of corn and distillers dried grain from the U.S. due to the presence of a GMO variety.How Can I Get It? The Evidence on Virus Transmission: QuickTakeChina’s latest moves come after a new coronavirus outbreak in the country had been blamed on imported salmon. Fears over whether food can transmit viruses had led salmon to be boycotted in the Asian nation, even as the country’s National Health Commission said there was no evidence showing the fish was either the origin or intermediate host for the virus.There were signs China was starting to back off from its previous stance linking food to virus cases. A customs official at a briefing on Friday said the country was taking the advice of international organizations that there’s a low risk of imported food transmitting the virus, and no food restrictions would be imposed. But this week’s moves have been a quick about face to that.“China is concerned about its reputation for safe food imports, especially after conceding some key items in the phase one agreement,” said Bevan Everett, a risk management consultant and grains market analyst at INTL FCStone Inc.The USMEF said in a letter to members that it was seeking additional information from the federal government and industry sources in China, while the U.S. Soybean Export Council said it was seeking clarification from Chinese authorities on how the request applies to soybeans compared with foods that don’t need to be processed before being consumed.“Exports of soy are not directly handled by humans, limiting the risk of exposure,” said Jim Sutter, USSEC’s chief executive officer. “U.S. soy is transported in bulk via intermodal freight, primarily in sealed railroad cars and barges and then onto cargo ships. Once the soybeans arrive in China they are discharged and processed before being fed to animals, with the oil then being further refined before use.”It’s still unclear why China is asking for the requirements and whether the move is aimed at restricting trade, since Brazilian shippers were also asked to sign the declaration. The USDA didn’t respond to requests for comment. The National Grain and Feed Association declined to comment.“This makes about as much sense as requiring China to certify that all the products it ships here are coronavirus free,” said Arlan Suderman, chief commodities economist at INTL FCStone in Kansas City, Missouri.(Adds information on Europe in 15th paragraph.)For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.

(Bloomberg) -- Tyson Foods Inc. is the only major U.S. meat company still regularly releasing results as it conducts coronavirus testing for employees. It’s also the only American meat producer to see China slap a ban on some of its shipments.On Sunday, China said customs would seize any shipments from a Tyson poultry plant in Arkansas after the company reported two days earlier that 13% of the facility’s workforce tested positive for Covid-19. The move has raised a lot of questions for the meat industry, including whether this will be a one-off action or the signal of a shifting stance from Beijing.If China starts to routinely implement this type of halt for plants with positive Covid-19 cases, it also raises the question of whether companies will continue to publicly announce testing results.China’s export suspension could discourage meat companies from being transparent about test results, said Jim Sumner, president of the USA Poultry and Egg Export Council in Atlanta.China Blocks Tyson Poultry, Stoking Fear Over Global Exports Tyson said Sunday it was looking into the reports on China’s action, and a spokesman on Monday said the company didn’t have more to add, while citing the company has been among the most transparent among major American food producers.Unions and labor groups have repeatedly called for increased testing as a key part of what’s needed to keep employees safe at meat plants, where thousands of workers have fallen sick with coronavirus. The groups have also said that transparency is needed on case counts.A German pork exporter has also voluntarily suspended meat shipments to China after a virus outbreak, the Asian country’s customs authority said last week. If China’s export ban spooks companies from releasing testing data, it could be a further step back for ensuring worker safety after dozens of employees at meat plants died from the virus over the past several months.The halt on Tyson shipments stands out because it’s hardly the only meat company with virus cases -- it’s just the only one continuously releasing data on testing.“Tyson should not have been cited for putting worker safety first or for its transparency in acknowledging that it has taken actions to quarantine workers at their Arkansas facility,” Sumner said in an email.For more articles like this, please visit us at bloomberg.comSubscribe now to stay ahead with the most trusted business news source.©2020 Bloomberg L.P.
