Bella Verdi is committed to food safety because our friends and family eat the food we produce.
Since inception we have been a Good Agriculture Practices (GAP) certified growing and packing facility with annual food safety audits by NSF. In 2015, in response to growing food safety concerns in the produce industry, we completed our cGMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) certification for our growing, harvesting, and packing operations. We strive to be on the forefront of food safety and make it a part of our everyday culture; our families and friends eat the products we produce.
No pesticides or fertilizers are used at Bella Verdi in growing our products. We utilize all natural pest prevention like Lady Bugs rather than toxic chemicals.
As part of our Food Safety Plan we have our products tested for pathogens on a regular basis to ensure the safest product available. We also test our water sources to confirm it is of the quality we need and expect for our operation.
All testing is done by an independent third party NELAP accredited lab located in Texas.
The primary plastic food containers we use are helping keep over 1 billion PET plastic bottles and thermoforms out of landfills each year. Containers are manufactured with 100% recycled food-grade PET with up to 100% curbside collected post-consumer content. They are 100% recyclable to limit our carbon footprint.
