Food Safety

R.C. Hatton Inc. and Performance Packaging sees quality and food safety as one. We also understand that delivering safe, top-quality produce and sugarcane is everyone’s responsibility at R.C. Hatton Inc. From planting the seeds to loading the truck – we go to great lengths to ensure our fresh products are handled with care. We also work diligently to create a safe, respectful environment for all of our valued employees.

Our combined food safety and quality management includes:

  • Ongoing employee training, as well as prerequisite programs
  • HACCP methodology
  • Careful cold-chain management
  • Regular food safety auditing and up-to-date certifications
  • Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification standards met through PrimusGFS food safety audits
  • Sustainability index program for entire supply chain
  • Ethical Sourcing Audits for all packinghouses

All facilities and fields are certified to ensure compliance with the strictest food safety standards.  Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) certification standards are met through PrimusGFS and GlobalG.A.P. food safety audits. In addition to certifications, we support the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI). Our vegetables can be traced to the exact pack date, field, and harvest crew.
