Food Safety

Premium Valley Produce recognizes the need to create and implement a first class food safety culture within our organization.  As a result we utilize a variety of resources to help ensure the food safety of our product line.

  1. Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) in the field
  2. 3rd Party Field Inspection Service
  3. Primus Labs
  4. California Leafy Greens
  5. HAACP Program
  6. Trace-back and Recall Programs

In addition to the food safety programs listed above, we are also in the process of researching solutions providers that will enable us to have food traceability capabilities in a windows based environment.
