Our mission is to provide you with pure, wholesome, healthy foods – and to do that, we abide by FDA Good Manufacturing Practices. We go to great lengths to keep our products clean and free from impurities and to prevent the cross contamination of allergens.
We have four production schedules to meet USDA certified organic guidelines and prevent cross-contamination of allergens. Each of these rotations begins with a thorough cleaning and sanitation of the production area, from blowing off all surfaces with a blast of compressed air to wiping down surfaces with approved cleaners and finally to rinsing all surfaces with fresh water.
Our production rotation schedules fall into the following four categories:
1) Gluten Free Organic Products: Only items that are naturally gluten-free are allowed in this rotation. These products must also be certified organic. After this product is run, a general cleanup is performed.
- What is a general cleanup? Compressed air is used between each product run and a full visual inspection performed to make sure no residue remains.
2) Gluten Free Non Organic Products: Only items that are naturally gluten-free and have been tested free from gluten are allowed in this rotation. These items are not certified organic, and a general cleanup is performed after production.
3) Non Organic Products: No restrictions and no products are segregated by allergens such as wheat/gluten, soy, peanuts and tree nuts. A general cleanup is performed after production.
4) Organic Products: All products are certified organic and no products are segregated by allergens such as wheat/gluten, soy, peanuts and tree nuts. A thorough cleaning and sanitation is performed after this step before the process begins again.
- What is a thorough cleaning and sanitation? The process begins with a complete sanitation of the production area. Compressed air is used to blow off all surfaces including machines, tables and utensils. All dust and debris is captured and disposed of. Approved cleaners are used to wipe down every surface to remove residue. Fresh water is used to rinse the surfaces. Finally, all surfaces are sanitized and left to dry.
