Food Safety

Vega Produce has a moral responsibility to safeguard its employees, customers, and the environment. We achieve it by carrying out a safe, injury-free & healthy workplace, supplying produce safe to consume, and minimizing a negative impact on the environment.

Our priority is to ensure that all our produce is held to the highest criteria using quality growing and handling practices. Vega Produce is certified using the Primus GFSi audit scheme, stricter food safety criteria than those found on the USDA Good Manufacturing & Agricultural Practices. We are now a verified NON-GMO Project. 

Certified Packinghouse

We are a Primus GFSi packinghouse, which provides greater flexibility to meet your needs. We have a strong food safety focus, with continuous employee training on handling, repacking, storing, and shipping our products. 

Standard operating procedures across all operational units are tailor-made to ensure we exceed all food safety handling requirements under Good Manufacturing Practices. Our sanitation program is monitored and controlled using the latest microbiological and bioluminescence testing. Overall, from picking, packing, shipping, and distribution, our food safety chain is secure and evolving to help produce our customers.

Supplier Approval and Monitoring

With an ever-growing network of growers across the globe, our food safety program ensures all products are imported or received and screened out to ensure quality and adherence to Good Agricultural Practices. We work with our growers to enhance traceability and proper agricultural processes to minimize risk.
