At Southern Specialties, food safety is our top priority. Which is why we engage in the best food safety practices every step of the way. Food safety begins on the farms, where we monitor water sources, limit the use of fertilizers and pesticides, and rely on the use of beneficial insects. We follow comprehensive guidelines and procedures at every stage of production – from planting and harvesting in the field to processing and distribution.
Sustainability has been part of our framework since our founding over twenty-five years ago. We work hard to use natural resources wisely and care for our farmlands to have the least impact on the environment. Many of our products are Fair Trade Certified and Rainforest Alliance Certified. Our assistance provides direct benefits to local school systems, helps bring in more doctors and dentists, and boosts the growth of healthy team activities like children’s intramural soccer.
