Food Safety

Food safety is and will always be our top priority.

At the Fresh Food Group, we're committed to the highest standards for safe, high-quality, fresh-cut fruit and vegetable products in North America.

We're proud to have an exceptional food safety record, and we plan to keep it. We'll continue to do this through extensive quality control measures during each step of our operation, from farm to fork, which ensures the freshest and safest products.

We recognize our essential role in providing healthy and safe fresh food solutions during these challenging times. The video below was released by the FDA in response to COVID-19 and food.
