How We Grow
How We Grow
It is fair to say that we are absolutely driven by quality. We work to improve every facet of our business, from planting to packaging and shipping. Year by year, we listen to our buyers and implement the necessary changes to provide the best produce in the business. Some of the values that govern our operation include:
In 2009 Daniels Produce became Primus Food Safety Certified, so our customers can rest easy knowing our products are safe and delicious. In 2013 we upgraded our food safety certification from Primus Standard to Primus Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), one of the highest level of food safety certifications obtainable.
Because all crops are irrigated, drought cannot affect our production.
Handpicking ensures you are getting the best out of each field, we pick the best and leave the rest. We have a great group of guys through the H2A program who are unbelievably hardworking and committed to picking all of our produce. They take great pride in their work and it shows!
Crop scouts are constantly checking every field to make certain every and all pest are kept under control.
We preserve the natural sugar in every ear so our corn taste as sweet and fresh as if it just came off the stalk. All sweet corn is hydro cooled with 38 degree water within 30 minutes or less, after picking.
In vegetables, timing is everything, and we work hard to make sure we have our products ready when you want them
PTI Print Compatible
In 2014 we added Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) Print Labels to all of our packaging. This allows us and our customers to trace all product forwards and backwards so we are able to provide the safest and freshest product to the consumer.
