About our Personel

Product Safety

We believe it is important to also provide our customers with the assurances that support our claims. To that end, we undergo an extensive annual third party facility audit from a qualified food safety auditor that examines all aspects of our operation, offers recommendations, provides information to make us compliant to the changes in the industry each year, and grades our overall efficiency. As stated this ensures and supports our claims that our facility meets and exceeds industry standard for essential practices such as product traceability, cleanliness, safety and security.

In addition, we welcome you to our facility for a tour, and we offer our facility audit results to our clients for their records each year.

We take pride in helping our customers in tight situations when other vendors have let them down or their client has a special need.  We believe it is essential for our clients to have a vendor to fall back on when these situations occur and, we want to be that vendor.
