SALINAS, CA – Taylor Farms has been named the winner of the SQFI Primary Producer of the Year award at the the Safe Quality Food International Conference in Orlando, Florida.
As an industry leader in food safety, Taylor Farms adheres to the letter of the strict protocols outlined by SQFI certification. It does not stop there, however. The grower takes its commitment to food safety one step farther, with the implementation of the the revolutionary SmartWash Solutions food safety and process control system in all of its facilities.
“There is no higher priority for Taylor Farms than food safety,” says Jason Kawata, Director of Quality Assurance, who was on site at the Safe Quality Food International Conference with other members of the Taylor Farms team to accept the award. “We are committed to the highest levels of food safety day in and day out, and it’s an honor to be recognized for those efforts. We want all of our customers to know there is no compromising when it comes to food safety.”
According to a press release, the SQF Quality Achievement Awards Program was implemented in order to recognize the commitment, support and performance of individuals and organizations who work with the organization to endorse and improve the SQFI and its certification process. The Safe Quality Food Institute is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). It was created to show customers the extensive steps taken at every step of the food processing chain in order to ensure the safety of their food.
Congratulations on this impressive achievement, Taylor Farms!
