GAP and Harmonized GAP
Overseen by the USDA, GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) and Harmonized GAP are comprehensive inspection programs that delve into every aspect of food safety during the growing process from pre-planting to post-harvest. All of our growers are in compliance with either GAP or Harmonized GAP Food Safety Standards, ensuring that all of our potatoes are grown in the safest conditions possible.
Cal-Ore Produce's facility is certified by PrimusGFS, which is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognized private scheme that establishes food safety requirements for the certification of agricultural produce. PrimusGFS establishes series of requirements for managing of the production, handling, processing and storing operations to ensure consumer’s safety in each productive stage.
USDA Certified Organic
All of our organic potatoes are USDA Certified Organic. This guarantees that the only agricultural products that have ever been used in the growing process of our organic potatoes are natural composts and/or products certified for organic use by an approved agency including OMRI and the WSDA.
