Lake Worth, FL (April 27, 2023) – Green Life Farms has completed its Food Safety Certification with PrimusGFS, a global leader in food safety certification with a near perfect CEA Greenhouse Score of 99 and a Pack Room Score of 98.
Green Life Farms is certified in Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), Good Agricultural Practices (GAP), and Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP). These certifications are revised every three years, and this most recent audit reaffirms that Green Life Farms continues to grow, harvest, and package its greens in an environment that makes food safety a main priority.
PrimusGFS is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) auditor that was founded over 20 years ago and is endorsed by more than 7,325 organizations, providing total produce supply chain coverage. The Food Safety Management System (FSMS) ensures that food is safe for human consumption. This system incorporates GMP, GAP, and HACCP and other practices, such as communication and regulatory requirements, to ensure that food safety is maintained in all areas of the production process.
GAP specifically assesses activities relating to water use, soil amendments, equipment, worker health, and pesticide usage in temporary or permanent enclosed structures such as hydroponic farms, greenhouses, or vertical growing facilities. These audits verify adherence to USDA recommendations and industry-recognized food safety practices.
