Food Safety

Growers Transplanting is committed to excellence in food safety throughout our greenhouse and the field transplanting departments. In partnership with our customers and certifying agencies, we have exceeded the requirements needed to ensure that our products are safe when delivered and planted in the field.

From seed, to greenhouse, to the field, and finally harvest, we know to the individual order exactly what sprays/fertilizers have been applied and when, at which location it was grown, when it was delivered to the field, and the manner in which it was transplanted.

Our 40 organic acres are certified USDA Organic, and all of our growing space is certified through Quality Assurance International (QAI), Global GAP, and the United States Food and Agriculture Organization’s Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) standards. Through Global GAP Certification, GTI now offers the following Global GAP Certified Crops:

  • Artichokes
  • Aubergines
  • Broccoli
  • Brussel sprouts
  • Cabbages
  • Capsicums (peppers)
  • Cauliflower

  • Coriander
  • Cucumbers
  • Endives
  • Herbs – misc.

  • Leeks
  • Lettuce

GTI's commitment is demonstrated by strong Global GAP scores of 100% for major requirements, 99% for minor requirements, and 70.6% for the recommended requirements.

We also have periodic independent audits from Davis Fresh and Safeway to verify our commitment to superior standards.
