Again Homestead food safety audits achieve superior scores

The Homestead food safety audit scores are in and again Brooks Tropicals achieves superior scores of 99% and 97%. "Superior" is how Primus Labs describes the scores.

The audits took place on June 2nd. The Cooling and Cold Storage facility obtained a 99% with the Packing House coming in a close second at 97%.

Food safety audits are extensive reviews of the buildings and outside perimeters. Packing materials, chemical storage, cleaning utensils, pest controls, equipment and vehicle use are all visually checked. Auditors also want to see extensive documentation showing that procedures and training are in place to follow food safety guidelines between official audits.

Congratulations Packing House and Shipping docks!
