Limoneira is the only citrus fruit grower in the United States to be GLOBAL GAP certified from tree to truck. Global G.A.P (Good Agricultural Practice) is a private sector body that sets voluntary standards for the certification of production processes of agricultural products around the globe.
The Global GAP standard is primarily designed to reassure consumers about how food is produced on the farm by minimizing detrimental environmental impacts of farming operations, reducing the use of chemical inputs and ensuring a responsible approach to worker health and safety as well as animal welfare.
Limoneira has also received the highest rating (Superior) from Primus Labs, the first certification body of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). The GFSI is collaboration between some of the world’s leading food safety experts from retailer, manufacturer and food safety companies as well as service providers associated with the food supply chain. GFSI is coordinated by the Consumer Goods Forum, the only independent global network for consumer goods retailers and manufacturers worldwide.
Limoneira adheres to all food safety regulations. We follow Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) as established in the Code of Federal Regulations (21 CFR 110.) Limoneira’s packing house undergoes and passes annual audits of GMPs and food safety/security programs by PrimusLabs, an independent third party auditor. These practices contribute to the Company’s food safety rating which is the highest in the industry and reassures the public that they are consuming a healthy, quality product.
