Food Safety and Sprouts
Growing food for consumers is the most important job a company can have. Making sure that food is safe to eat is our responsibility. We know that following the regulations set by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is our primary job. That is why we support the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA) regulations. We have designed our programs and procedures to align and be in compliance with the Produce Safety Rule (PSR) and subpart M of this rule; Standards for the Growing, Harvesting, Packing, and Holding of Produce for Human Consumption for Sprout Operations. Please follow the link below to read the full rule and regulation:
Our management staff has attended formal training through the Sprouts Safety Alliance (SSI).
They understand the rules and regulation related to our products. Thereby understanding how to grow, harvest, pack and hold sprouts safely for our customers' consumption.
We make sure the seeds are closely inspected when received, that the seeds are washed and sanitized before growing. Finally, we test the process of water for each batch of sprouts being harvested for pathogenic bacteria. We hold all sprouts until we receive laboratory verification that all sprouts are negative of pathogenic bacteria. This is done with consumer food safety in mind.
If you have any questions about the food safety of our sprouts please feel free to contact us, we will be happy to answer your questions.
