At Treehouse Almonds, our commitment to food safety serves as the foundation of our operation, from our diligent process supervision to our highly advanced technologies.
A Culture of Food Safety
Treehouse California Almonds holds itself to the highest food safety standards in the almond industry.
Food safety starts in the orchards of a select group of growers with whom Treehouse has partnered with. Our growers focus on Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) in the field, ensuring the almonds we receive are of the highest grade and standards in the industry.
Our close relationships with these growers allows for unparalleled supply-chain transparency and traceability of almonds down to the exact grower and field.
At our processing facility, we focus on best practices for hygiene and sanitation always. Our data-enabled ready-to-eat processing environments and pasteurization processes give us the confidence our products are safe for consumption by our customers and end consumers.
Finally, our staff is fully committed to the production of safe products and are trained on best practices in order for us to sustain this food-safe focus throughout the almond ingredient refinement journey.
