FOOD SAFETY.Even though our high rate of rotation ensures extremely fresh product, our management and staff go the extra mile when it comes to food safety. Preventing food borne illness is paramount at each of our facilities.
In addition to our strict HACCP program, all of our facilities have the honor of being distinguished as SQF Level 3 facilities, the highest certification available. Constant microbial inspection and stringent employee training programs ensure that our products are fresh, clean, and safe. Our in-house and independent product and environmental tests are in full compliance with FDA, USDA, and the EPA.
It is our belief that food safety begins in the field. We monitor our fruit continually and only accept product from farmers and suppliers that uphold our philosophy and maintain an unbroken cold chain and Good Manufacturing Practices.
