1. Safety and Quality
Our team regularly visits our overseas suppliers to inspect their farms and facilities. We enforce the highest standards in microbe, pesticide, and chemical testing and require our suppliers to be compliant with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standards. We perform regular reviews of supplier audits and have strong relationships with supplier and third party auditors to stay on top of quality assurance. Audits we require include BRC, FSSC 22000, Global GAP, and IFS Food Version 6.
We also keep close tabs on supply chains and enforce corporate social responsibility audits to promote transparency and responsible sourcing. We work closely with our suppliers and customs broker so that shipments pass USDA, FDA, and US Customers regulations and inspections.
Our food and ingredient suppliers are required to have regular social responsibility audits, such as SA8000 (Social Accountability International), BSCI (Business Social Compliance Initiative) and SMETA (Sedex Associate Auditor Group). We implement Fair Trade programs by request through our relationships with Fair Trade certifiers such as SCS, FLOCERT, and Fair Trade USA.
