Food Safety


Live-Oak-Farms-Donna-Vaughan-Headshot“Ten years ago we worked with other farmers, customers, and trade associations to develop the first ever mandatory food safety program for fresh tomatoes. We were leaders then and are today. But, I’m also a mom and know that it’s confusing for parents as to what’s safe. I’m not selling any vegetable that I don’t feed to my own children.”

All farms and packing facilities are audited to the GFSI Benchmarked Primus GFS standard.  Our FSMA compliant food safety management systems, Good Agricultural Practices, and Good Manufacturing Practices are validated by SCS Global Services, a world-wide leader in independent third-party food safety auditing. In 2019, our ranches scored better than 97%, our tomato packing operations at 98%, and peppers scored 100%

Our commitment to food safety goes beyond the audit, with frequent scheduled assessments and environmental monitoring that would help identify any potential food safety risk in our tomato or pepper operations. To learn more, contact Marianna Moreno, our Food Safety Coordinator.
