Our Statement of Quality
At Freshwater Farms, product quality is a never-ending mission. While other companies speak of product safety and quality as a tradition that remains unchanged, Freshwater Farms looks at product quality as a continuously evolving process. We believe that understanding our customer begins with understanding the quality of products we make. We see every effort we put towards a better product as a long-term investment in our client relationship. Freshwater Farms has a state-of-the-art, in-house, quality control laboratory at our plant facility. So, in addition to the tests the FDA and USDA are independently conducting on our products and facilities, we perform a more stringent product quality assessment program for continuously monitoring Listeria, Salmonella, TPC and Coliform/E. coli. This program exceeds the current guidelines and standard care that is required of our industry. This will assure our customers that the products distributed from our facility have been subjected to rigorous inspection and product quality analysis.
