Our thoughts remain with all of those who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic.

For more information regarding the virus, please check with the CDC, the World Health Organization (WHO), and your state and local municipalities.

March 16, 2020

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) dominating the news and daily conversations in our community and the world, I wanted to personally reach out to you with reassurance that we are taking the necessary actions to ensure we keep you, our staff members and our community safe and healthy.

During this time, we have looked to the NYC Dept of Health, the USDA, the FDA and the national Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for guidance in updating our practices and making our business decisions.

Protecting our team members is extremely important. We’ve already taken steps to protect and educate them and are working to ensure the continuity of our business. To help protect our team members and communities, we’re following the advice of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), including taking the following measures:
• Encouraging sick team members to stay home.
• Separating and sending home team members who appear to have respiratory symptoms.
• Promoting frequent handwashing, as well as sneezing etiquette.
• Routinely cleaning frequently touched surfaces in the workplace.

We’ve posted these recommendations and other information in our plants and offices and will continue to update our team members as this situation progresses.
We’ve implemented additional travel restrictions. We have suspended all international travel from the U.S. and are also putting limits on team members scheduling or attending large, work-related trade shows or conferences.

Coronavirus or COVID-19 is not considered a food safety concern. The CDC says, “currently there is no evidence to support transmission of COVID-19 associated with food.” The USDA reports, “There is no evidence at this time to suggest that the Coronavirus is a foodborne pathogen.” According to a statement from the FDA, “We are not aware of any reports at this time of human illnesses that suggest COVID-19 can be transmitted by food or food packaging.”
Food safety is critical to Gourmet Boutique. Our food safety professionals, some who work with federal inspectors in our facilities, will continue their work to ensure the products we provide remain safe and wholesome.

As we get through this crisis together, we stand ready to serve you for all your prepared food needs in the safest manner possible.

On behalf of everyone at Gourmet Boutique, be safe and thank you for being our customer.

Today we solemnly honor all of those who selflessly served in our armed forces to protect the freedoms we enjoy every day in this great country. The entire #gbFamily sincerely thank all veterans for their service and their sacrifice, and are eternally grateful for the same. To all veterans – thank you for your service.

“True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic. It is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.” –Arthur Ash

Fall is officially in the air. Mornings are cool and brisk, and the sun starts to set at a different angle. When the leaves start to change we crave the tastes of earthy spices, pumpkin, and other squashes abound, everyone in the #gbFamily welcomes the season, and guaranteed that we have some offerings to complete your fall fare banquet.

Need a potato fix? Try our creamy Mashed Sweet Potatoes that have a hint of maple syrup or our Herb Roasted Potatoes with notes of garlic. Are you a squash lover? Our savory All Natural Roasted Butternut Squash might fit the bill with tastes of cinnamon, pecans, and cranberries. We suggest our delicious Maple Glazed Yams if you’re looking for a sweeter squash side dish. Sweet Potato Soufflé might possibly be the perfect dessert solution for your autumn suppers.

If you need something quick for Football Sunday snacks, serve some 100% white meat Buffalo Style Chicken Meatballs from @FreshByGourmet. Stick them with a toothpick and put them on a platter with some ranch or blue cheese dressing for a delicious dish with a kick! We also suggest @TruGrill Chili Lime Chicken Strips or Diced Chicken Breasts to make into a wide range of zesty game day grub. Incorporate them into a dip, stick them with a ‘pick, or wrap them up for mini burritos for a guaranteed touchdown!

Whatever your need, Gourmet Boutique® has you covered with a wide range of solutions for your fall feasts. Contact us to see more about what solutions we have to offer you!

What a beautiful day! This past Saturday, September 14, the #gbFamily celebrated big at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, NY with our 17th Annual Picnic. The theme: Carnival! There was face painting, music, dancing, games, prizes, and, of course, FOOD! What looked like a possibly rainy day turned out to be a gorgeous, sunny, and cool. Everyone had a great time!

As a company, we like to celebrate our staff as often as possible. Our associates are the best around, and give us SO MUCH of their time and energy; a picnic is just one small gesture with which we can try to pay them back. Once again, sincere thanks goes out to all of the men and women who work tirelessly to make our company as successful as it is. We would not be as prosperous as we are without each and every one of you.

THANK YOU!
