Food Safety

Tastyfrutti’s suppliers strictly adhere to FDA, USDA and environmental guidelines promoting Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and quality assurance.

Our exporters and growers have consolidated international food safety requirements, incorporating a program of recorded systematic procedures to grow high-quality, safe fruit in a sustainable way. Tastyfrutti endorses the Socially Accountable Farm Employers (SAFE) program for all of our producers of fresh fruit products. Tastyfrutti is compliant with the FDA Food Safety Management Act (FSMA).

A significant aspect of Tastyfrutti’s safety policy includes the certification of all operational personnel by the American Food Safety Institute. All cold-storage facilities are food safety and HACCP certified by Primus Labs.

Tastyfrutti is an advocate of the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) spearheaded by the United Fresh Produce Association, PMA and CPMA. Presently, we are compliant with the milestones set forth in the PTI Action Plan.
