Food Safety
  • food-defense-icon
    Food Defense

    The Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) changed the way we conduct business. It demonstrates that science is the proof you need. Standard operating procedures, traceability and science are some of the most crucial factors in a good food defense. We can assist in developing your written plan for the one step forward (to your immediate customers) and backwards (to your suppliers) accountability.  Suppliers MUST appropriately show traceability at receipt, during processing, storage, and sale of the proper handling and care of your product.

  • operating-procedures-icon
    Standard Operating Procedures

    Standard Operating Procedures guide your employees in their regular activities. If the activity is critical to quality or safety it should be recorded in your company’s standard operating procedures. (SOPs). We can provide guidance and even create your SOP manual to ensure your operations meet all the safety and food defense requirements as well as ensure you are operating at an optimal level.

  • traceability-icon

    Traceability is one of the most important parts of your food defense. It is critical for the grower to know where the product is at all times within the grow and delivery cycles.  In addition, the grower must document the product life cycle. Knowing what to inspect, track, and document is key.  Our team will help you implement these procedures and systems.
