How we mitigate against pathogen related food-safety concerns

Our food safety protocols are informed by the US FDA’s Guide to Minimize Microbial Food Safety Hazards for Fresh Fruits and Vegetables and include:

  • Use clean, good quality water that has been treated to remove pathogens
  • Wash / sanitize hands prior to handling of plants and equipment
  • Keep the growing area as clean as possible. Remove any plants that are sick or rotting, and immediately take out pruning remnants, old leaves and other organic matter
  • At harvest time, wash hands, knives and other tools before use.
  • Pets are never allowed into the greenhouse
  • Never use composted materials, manure etc.
