Produce

EAS advises domestic and foreign produce growers, importers, packing houses, produce warehouses and shipping companies on the US Produce Safety and related regulatory requirements. These EAS services can range from questions that can be answered via simple phone calls to highly time-sensitive and urgent problems such as a company and its produce being placed on an FDA “Import Alert” list, prohibiting any entry of produce into the US. In order to minimize regulatory issues with FDA, EAS can conduct an on-site assessment of the grower’s Good Agricultural Practices (GAPs) as well as evaluation of the produce packing house or produce warehouse for compliance with GMPs. EAS can determine whether your commercial farm, harvesting, packing and/or warehouse facilities meet FSMA’s Produce Safety requirements for GAP and GMP programs.
