Bridges Produce understands that food safety is one of the most critical issues in the produce industry.
Bridges is committed to providing safe and nutritious produce, and works closely with our grower partners to ensure that applicable food safety laws, as well as the constantly evolving industry standards, are being followed. We maintain current third-party food safety certifications for both the farms and the packing houses for all produce we supply, and provide this documentation to customers upon request. Our grower partners are certified by numerous third parties, including:
Bridges and their grower partners have traceability practices and policies in place for all produce sold. This includes internal and external tracking systems and unitization of Global Trade Identification Numbers (GTIN). Bridges performs mock recalls periodically to test our traceability systems.
We are proud to be an Oregon Tilth certified Organic Handler. By maintaining this certification, we provide our customers confidence regarding the organic integrity of the produce we supply while allowing them to retain only one certificate. Certified organic produce is always non-GMO.
