Food safety is a top priority at Trucco and our quality control begins with the grower.
-We require Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) standard third-party audits from all growers for both their farms and packing houses.
-All products are stored at our Cold Storage facility in Vineland, NJ, which is certified by PrimusGFS.
-We have implemented the Produce Traceability Initiative (PTI) so that each case is traced throughout the entire supply chain, to maximize the effectiveness of current traceback procedures.
-We have implemented the DataBar barcode on all of our PLU stickers.
Trucco recognizes the importance of implementing responsible practices that preserve environmental quality and economic viability for current and future generations. We are making changes to implement sustainable practices throughout our operations and supply chain.
-All waste generated at our facilities is separated and either recycled, or sent to local area farms for composting.
-We are constantly looking for innovative packaging options which use less raw materials, and can help decrease the use of fossil fuels and transportation costs. Our clamshells are made with RPET (recycled water bottles) and we have created a plastic pouch bag which use 65% less material than a clamshell.
