It seems incredible how our lives have changed so drastically during the past few months as a result of this global pandemic that, unfortunately, still hovers over us.

To share the personal perspectives and experience about how everyone at Bodegas Fundador are overcoming the health crisis in their day-to-day lives, the company asked for the voluntary collaboration of employees to show how they lived and felt during the pandemic. The result was an inspiring video that shows how every employee gets by, enjoying the company of their families, colleagues, and of course the work that they do—something that captures the best representation of Bodegas Fundador’s efforts during these extraordinary times.

Industry-leading safety measures vs COVID-19

The company’s unwavering commitment to the safety and well-being of its workers, visitors, and customers also paved the way for Bodegas Fundador to obtain the newly established “Global Safe Site” certification from Bureau Veritas, renowned world leaders in testing, inspection and certification.

This certification affirms the company’s initiatives, recommendations and implementation of best practices to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

During the comprehensive audit process, a company aiming to secure the certification must be found to comply with 78 specific standards set by Bureau Veritas. These are divided into four major categories, namely Processes, People, Hygiene, and Facilities.

Throughout the third week of July, the Bureau Veritas auditors visited all Bodegas Fundador facilities. These include the vineyards, distillery, maturing and blending cellars, bottling lines, laboratories, the Visitor Center, as well as the central headquarters.

In addition to these inspections, records, and paperwork were examined to assure continuous compliance with the established standards and protocols of cleanliness, hygiene and safety. The result of this assessment emphasized the high degree of compliance of Bodegas Fundador with the preventive measures against COVID-19.

In the same way, the audit itself served to identify some opportunities for improvement that will help the company further develop its protection initiatives against COVID-19.

The Bureau Veritas Safe Site certificate will be posted visibly for all who visit Bodegas Fundador to see that the company’s various facilities are all certified and observe a series of strict preventive safety measures to conduct work and leisure with confidence and security.
