for hand sanitizers, surface
sanitizing sprays, and even N-95
masks, said Deb Duvernay, the
company's executive director
of sales.
"We have supported key
customers as best we can, but
we can see the supply chain
struggling to keep up," she said.
"For our core products, we see

our grocery partners moving
forward with automation
initiatives for food safety labeling
and temperature monitoring."
DayMark's safety efforts reach
beyond facilities themselves,
Carte added. The company's
TamperSeal tamper-evident
labels, for instance, provide safe
food delivery for restaurants and

retail food establishments that
utilize third-party delivery.
The labels feature an
aggressive patterned adhesive
that gives a clear indication if
delivered food may have been
tampered with. TamperSeal labels
are functional in a wide range of
temperatures and approved for
indirect food contact, Carte said.

The new normal

DayMark's TamperSeal provides peace of mind to foodservice
purveyors who rely on third-party delivery services. The company's
Menu Pilot reduces dependence on hardware.

Rowdy Brixey, president of Brixey
Engineering Inc., Holt, Mo., and
his team learned early on how
the food industry has changed
and will continue to be impacted
by the coronavirus.
"Customers would ask
about our service and we'd
immediately have to think about
the geographical restrictions," he
said. "Like if we went into Texas,
any outside contractors who
came in had to be quarantined
for 14 days. Well, we wouldn't
be able to pay for a hotel for 14
days, so we may have to turn
it down."
For the customers Brixey
Engineering could get in to
help, they quickly learned how
widely different their COVID-19
protocols could be. Some took
temperatures as they entered
the building, others didn't. Some
provided masks, others not.
"Every single day before my
folks enter a site, they have to
sign up, using picture editing
on their phones," Brixey said.
"There's a limited number of
questions they have to answer,
then sign with their finger on
their phone before they can walk
into a facility. Then I compile it
and send it to that site."
Once on the job, Brixey
Engineering outlines cleaning
and safety regimens for its clients
to stick to.
"For all of our customers, we
try to look at what will be the
highest sustainability level of

cleanliness, health and safety we
can apply," he said. "Ours would
either meet or exceed their levels.
They have the best practices,
they've learned from their
customers, have brainstormed
and compiled all that."
Unfortunately, when it comes
to COVID-19, it may not be
a question of when it will be
over, Brixey said, but will it ever
be over?
"I'm not sure if any person is
able to define that, when is it
over, when can we lower our
guard," he said. "The hard part is
you don't know for 14 days that
you are symptomatic. Part of
this is everyone having integrity
and trusting each other to do the
right things."
Some parts of the "new
normal" will likely be with us
permanently, Brixey predicted.
He could see, for instance, US
food production plants adopting
some version of what he and
his team see when they go to
inspect a Bimbo plant in Mexico:
people wearing a face mask that
basically covers their entire face,
not just their nose and mouth.
"I have a feeling that for the
cost and level of protection, I
think that something like could
lead to more lasting change,"
he said. "I don't think everyone
will be taking their temperatures
a year from now, but there will
likely be questions about where
you're coming in from, how are
you feeling."
The key, Brixey said, is finding
a cure. He compares working
around COVID-19 to working
with a deadly animal.
"If you're working with
rattlesnakes, you feel a lot better
knowing there's antivenom
within reach, and you know
you're not going to die," he
said. "If they come up with a
treatment, things will get back to
normal fairly quick."
