US Business Executive, a platform for elite business leaders across the nation, recently did a case study on Professional Produce with an emphasis on the food safety system and culture at Professional Produce. The article can be read in its entirety here:
Professional Produce has been re certified as a SQF Level 2 facility. Food Safety for all of our customers and consumers is of paramount importance at Professional Produce. Furthermore, most of our customers require specific levels of food safety to do business with them. Stated in the simplest terms, the recognized solution to the problem of food borne illness is a comprehensive prevention strategy that involves all participants in the food system, domestic and foreign, doing their part to minimize the likelihood of harmful contamination. Professional Produce has adopted the strategy mandated by SQF scheme as part of the Global Food Safety Initiative. It is not a strategy that assumes we can achieve a zero-risk food supply, but it is a strategy grounded in the conviction that we can better protect our customers and ultimately the consumers as well as the economic vigor of the food system if everyone involved implements reasonably available measures to reduce risk.
Compac Sorting Equipment, Inc., recently visited our facility and did a video cases study relating to our Compac Sorting Machine and how we use it in our day to day operations. The video can be viewed by clicking here.
