Food Safety

Fitz Fresh mushrooms are handpicked directly from the bed, trimmed and meticulously inspected before packing. This technique protects the quality of each mushroom throughout the process.

Fitz Fresh utilizes a technologically advanced traceback system. A bar coding system is used on every carton of mushrooms and provides detailed information that is stored in a computer data base. The information can be used to determine the time, date and location the mushrooms were harvested, as well as variety, quality and size. Cartons can then be traced through the shipping and distribution chain. When effectively implemented, the program builds confidence among regulators and consumers that the industry is in control of all phases of the production process.

Fitz Fresh voluntarily implemented Good Agricultural and Manufacturing Practices, a comprehensive HACCP food safety program and traceback system well in advance of USDA and FDA requirements.
