ST. CHARLES, Mo. ( – A St. Charles business is requiring all of its employees to be fully vaccinated by Sept. 30, 2021.

“Our main priority at Ole Tyme is making sure our employees and customers are safe,” said Joan Daleo, President and CEO of Ole Tyme Produce. “During the pandemic and on-going, we remain committed to our employees and customers in being transparent with them through the decision-making process.”

The largest regional woman-owned fresh food distributor said many of their external customers have released public guidelines requiring visitors to their facilities and campuses to be vaccinated against COVID-19. The company stated there are reasons an employee may be exempt from the vaccine requirement and accommodation requests will be reviewed. About 80% of their employees are currently vaccinated. They're trying to get the remaining 20% vaccinated by September 30.

Ole Tyme Produce provides produce to schools, restaurants, catering services and sports venues.
