A Daily Commitment
It takes daily vigilance and commitment to maintain a clean, safe processing facility. We are fortunate to have a large, talented pool of employees who take the utmost care in maintaining our food safety and quality standards. From the orchards to the packaging process, every step we take is focused on providing the world’s highest quality California walnuts to our customers.
We follow the globally recognized Current Good Manufacturing Practices (cGMP) and Hazard Analysis and Risk-Based Preventive Controls (HARPC) systems to ensure that quality with food safety takes precedence in all of our operations. This science-based, preventative system identifies, evaluates and controls hazards to food safety. It covers the complete production process from the receipt of raw materials to distribution.
