Food safety has surfaced to the top of everyone's agenda. The safe handling of food is and always has been a top priority at Superior Sales Inc., and it's been and integral part of our standard of operating procedures from the very beginning. We've developed exceedingly high standards based upon the FDA's Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). From worker hygiene, packing to storage, cooler operations, and facility cleanliness, we've placed extensive emphasis on prevention of product contamination from direct and indirect sources. Superior Sales Inc. is audited each year by PrimusLabs and has scored a 99% on the PrimusGFS Audit giving us the SUPERIOR rating on our facility and handling of our food products.
It doesn't stop there, we follow safety guidelines and policies that begin in the field and carry through to the customer. We require 100% compliance to Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) from all our growers as well. Following FDA guidelines, the Superior GAP manual for our growers addresses site selection and adjacent land use, fertilizer usage, water sourcing, pest control and pesticide monitoring, harvesting, handling and cooling practices. We demand the same care and attention to safe handling from our shippers, from farm to storage facilities and distribution centers to customer receiving.
It's a coordinated effort that along with major retailers, place Superior Sales Inc., well ahead in the safe distribution of food.
