Fresh Kist is compliant with GAPs (Good Agricultural Practices), the LGMA (Leafy Greens Marketing Act) food safety practices, the Federal COOL rules (Country of Origin Labeling) and meet the high standards of our customers and growers. Those standards are tested repeatedly throughout the growing season through:
* Annual ranch, harvest and cooler third party audits, performed by Primus Labs
* Multiple LGMA audits throughout the year, including each grower and harvester
* Periodic unannounced audits by the LGMA
* Customer audits and additional customer documentation
We've had COOL (Country of Origin Labeling) on our packaging since we opened for business in 2000.
As a member of hte LGMA we already have policies and practices that either meet or exceed the new FSMA rules.
We work with facilities that comply with the FDA's Bio-terrorism Registration requirement.
