A Message from Chairman & CEO Robert Gamgort

It is during times of uncertainty that I am reminded of the tremendous resiliency and generosity of the human spirit. The outbreak of COVID-19 has profoundly changed our lives, our work and the ways we interact with one another. Yet, together, we persevere. From nurses and doctors to grocery store cashiers and delivery drivers, these essential workers are bravely serving our communities and are true heroes in this pandemic. I am immensely proud of our own frontline employees who are working selflessly to manufacture, distribute and stock store shelves with the essential goods our communities need.

Our first priority, always, is to keep our employees safe and healthy. We’ve taken extraordinary precautions to do this and to provide the support our employees and their families may need during this unprecedented time.

We continue to deliver for our customers and consumers, working hard around the clock to fulfill strong demand. We are finding innovative ways to quickly adapt to changes in shopping behaviors, with more than half of North America impacted by stay-at-home, shelter-in-place and closure of non-essential business orders.

We are also focused on providing for our communities by supporting frontline healthcare workers who are fighting this crisis day in and day out head on. We don’t make masks or medical equipment at our Company, but we do make beverages and, through our new Fueling The Frontline program, we are donating Keurig brewers, coffee and other beverages to hospitals in need, as our way to say thank you for the unwavering commitment and courage of the entire medical community.

I want to thank our 26,000 employees for everything they’re doing to come together as ONE KDP in support of those we serve and in demonstrating deep compassion for each other and our communities. The coming weeks are likely to be challenging, but I am confident that our Company will emerge even stronger and more united. I’m optimistic that this will be true of our communities as well. Together, we will overcome this challenge.

Be well and stay safe,

Bob Gamgort
Chairman and CEO
