Our food safety programs, such as Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s), have been developed based on Federal, State and local government agencies requirements and guidance.
The products we sell are grown by high quality and socially responsible farming companies around the globe. The majority of our fresh produce is field-packed within seconds of harvest, directly into final package, to avoid multiple handlings that could damage or contaminate.
Our Suppliers are members of organizations, confirming that their operations are regularly audited for food safety practices of the departments of Food and Agriculture. We are global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certified. In addition, we have our operations audited by non-government third party companies to ensure the safest products possible.
Cold Chain Management
Maintaining a cold chain, and keeping fresh produce held at a given temperature from the time of harvest to the time of consumption is something we take very seriously at Gelardi. Routine monitoring and documentation of the temperature of refrigerated areas and trucks is the only way to make sure that the cold chain has been maintained. Our company aggressively monitors temperature and quality, thus ensuring our customers get the very best, fresh produce available on the wholesale market.
