NatureFresh™ Farms believes that success depends on the supply of high quality products that meet or exceed customer and consumer expectations for premium fresh produce. Fundamental to this belief is the responsibility of all NatureFresh™ team members to ensure the food safety of all products that the company handles.
We believe that the responsibility for achieving food safety commitments lies with each and every NatureFresh™ Farms team member, no matter their position. However, employees that have direct influence on the produce, the packaging, the storage, and the transport of products are directly involved in ensuring food safety standards are met on a daily basis.
We utilize Primus GFS at the farm because of their expertise in GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) in both greenhouse growing and harvesting. We also utilize SQF Level 3 for their expertise in GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and in Quality Plan Management. Both schemes are benchmarked by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative).
Our product is identified with DataBar PLU stickers, UPC bar codes and PTI labels which have an encoded GLN (Global Location Number) which tells us the exact location where the product came from. A NatureFresh™ Farms’ PTI label can tell you the exact place and time the case was packed. If there were an emergency, NatureFresh™ Farms has the ability to locate any lot of product within minutes using our integrated software programs.
