FOOD SAFETY

From farm to table, food safety is paramount at Daylight Foods

At Daylight Foods, our primary focus is on food safety. Our goal is to procure, hold, process and distribute safe food products to our customers. Our FDA registered facility is regularly inspected and is committed to a HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) program.

Our food safety starts with our growers, shippers, and manufacturers. Daylight Foods purchases products only from companies that maintain their own sanitation/food safety programs with very specific guidelines that meet GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices), GAP (Good Agricultural Practices), and SSOP (Sanitation, Standard Operating Procedures). Our transportation fleet is cleaned on a daily basis and sanitized weekly. Our refrigeration units hold an advanced maintenance program to maintain the proper cold chain. Our receiving staff completes a detailed receiving procedure including truck and product temperature and condition logs. From procurement to delivery we ensure the safest and highest quality produce for our customers.
