Within hours of being harvested from the certified farms, the Berries are brought to our processing facility where they are cleaned and packed using state of the art technology to preserve their remarkable flavor and quality.
Once received the berries are assigned GIC codes (grower identifications codes) for tracebility. This GIC number follows the product through all the steps in the processing procedure and can be traced back from the retailer.
The product is graded by our trained quality control technicians and scheduled for processing accordingly to preserve the quality and flavor of the fruit.
For maintaining highest standard of food safety, stringent HACCP principles are followed to ensure the highest quality of the fruit.
