Food Safety Programs

Keeping produce safe for consumer consumption is extremely important because it affects everyone involved in the food system. While annual audits are important to ensure food safety is in place, all levels of an organization must be dedicated to keep it top of mind and ensure it’s part of daily practices.

As a member of Earth And Time, all our farms must be recognized as meeting the requirements of the GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). CanadaGAP, BRC Audits and Primus GFS all meet or exceed these requirements as well.

We work with the best third-party auditing companies including the NSF, Primus Labs and SGS.  Additionally, we recommend all farms adopt HACCP models in their operations. (HACCP stands for Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points, a preventative system developed by NASA and food safety experts in the 1960s. The HACCP principles form the basis of today’s food safety plans around the world.)

Our programs are forward-thinking, well organized and contain multiple review points from multiple sources to ensure we are sending out products our customers can trust.
