At Produce Alliance food safety and quality assurance isn't just our management initiative, it's our way of life.  With our alliance of quality growers and dedicated distributors, our food service partners trust us to provide them top quality produce at the leading market price.  Our suppliers and distributors must meet specific food safety guidelines for quality assurance and are inspected by an approved third-party auditor.  A meticulous review of the supplier's food safety program, recall program and employee training program is also conducted to ensure the safety and satisfaction of our partners.  We offer industry-leading technology as a means to seamlessly trace and track product accountability with a full staff of Customer Account Managers readily available.

From our farms to your fork, our dedication to food safety is paramount to the success of Produce Alliance and its partners.
