Splenda Sweeteners response to COVID-19

To Our Valued Healthcare Professional Customers:

Thank you for all of the work you're doing to help keep our communities safe and to help people live their healthiest lives every day.

COVID-19 has brought an unprecedented increase in demand for Splenda Sweeteners. The leadership role you play to provide individuals with health and nutrition guidance, and confidence in their health and food choices is extremely important. We would like to share with you some actions we are taking to continue to assure the safety, quality, and availability of Splenda Sweeteners.

Employee and Food Safety

Our top priorities are to keep our employees safe while following all of the CDC guidelines for COVID-19 and to guarantee the safety of our products. Our manufacturing and distribution operations are held to the highest levels of sanitation and cleanliness to ensure food safety, and we have additional measures in place to keep our employees and products safe during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Examples of some of these measures include:

  • implementing safe spacing of people who are working on our production lines,
  • practicing safe social distancing during breaks,
  • gaining employee commitment to practice safe social distancing, not socializing, and not being in public places while not at work, and
  • providing paid leave of absence for any employee who does not feel well so they can responsibly stay home from work.

The US FDA has published that currently there is no evidence of food or food packaging being associated with transmission of COVID-19.  We will continue to implement our extensive procedures to conduct routine cleaning and enforce the same strict quality and safety standards for our products to continue to be safe.

Product Supply and Access

We have continued to focus on partnering with our retail, foodservice and supplier partners to ensure that our consumers, who depend on our products for managing their health and wellbeing, have continued access to the Splenda brand that they trust.

Our product production is running at full capacity and we are closely monitoring consumer demand to minimize delays in deliveries. Splenda Sweeteners continue to be available to purchase at retail stores and are available at Amazon.com. Use our product locator or call our customer support at 1-800-777-5363 to find our products at local stores.

It is our responsibility and privilege to keep essential products that our consumers need on the shelf and available online. We are proud to continue to support our economy with the Splenda brand, the only low calorie sweetener 100% Sourced and Made in the USA.

Thank you for your partnership and for your leadership in healthcare.
