Taylor Farms, the Salinas CA-based provider of produce for the foodservice industry, has once again been recognized for its commitment to the highest levels of food safety. At the Safe Quality Food International (SQFI) Conference in Orlando FL recently, Taylor Farms was honored as the SQFI Primary Producer of the Year.
The SQFI Quality Achievement Awards Program pays tribute to the outstanding commitment, support, and performance of individuals and organizations who contribute to endorsing and improving the SQFI and its certification process. This institute is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is designed to reassure consumers that stringent food safety practices are integrated into every step of the food processing chain.
Taylor Farms is an established leader in food safety, not only adhering to the strict protocols outlined by SQFI certification, but also implementing the SmartWash Solutions food safety and process control system in all Taylor Farms facilities. All products are subject to a multi-stage wash featuring SmartWash, a proven system to eliminate bacterial cross-contamination.
“There is no higher priority for Taylor farms than food safety,” said Jason Kawata, director of quality assurance for Taylor Farms. “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.”
Kawata and other members of the Taylor Farms team were in Orlando to accept the award.
The SQFI Conference is designed and developed by professional peers in the food safety industry. It provides current and prospective SQFI users an opportunity to gain knowledge and skills to strengthen food safety and food quality assurance programs, collaborate and connect with people who speak their language, and enhance their careers.
A family-owned company, Taylor Farms has seven strategically located regional processing facilities across the United States and in Mexico.
