Food Safety

We are mindful that millions of families worldwide trust us to provide safe, wholesome food. We won’t let them down. Richter and Company Produce is committed to supplying only safe and wholesome fruits and vegetables. From our fields and orchards to the shipping box, our products are grown, packed and shipped to exacting standards. Our farms control every aspect of our operation to ensure that only the freshest produce arrives at your table.

Our Commitment to Food Safety

Our packing facilities implement extensive cleaning and sanitation programs to ensure food safety. We closely monitor every area of the packing shed that comes in contact with fresh fruits and vegetables. The facilities and equipment are thoroughly cleaned after each operation to prevent contamination.

We take every precaution to see that our fruits and vegetables won’t be recalled. But if they were, we use the latest machines and software to implement a swift recall procedure. State-of-the-art technology allows us to trace our products from the neighborhood grocery store back to the field where it was grown and picked.
