Food Safety

The Number One Issue in Produce Nationwide

Mariposa Farms is CERTIFIED as a Globally Food Safe, Growing, Harvesting and Packing Facility.

We are independently audited by 5 different Inspection Agencies:

  1. FDA
  2. Iowa Department of Agriculture
  3. State of Iowa
  4. Iowa Weights and Measures
  5. PrimusLabs


Our Food Safety team is trained and certified in HACCP.

Hazard analysis and critical control point (HACCP) is a monitoring system aimed at identifying and controlling health hazards. It’s used to prevent contamination during the growing and packing process. HACCP shifts the responsibility of Food Safety to the food producer to ensure that the products are safe for consumers.

While many companies are scrambling Mariposa Farms is already compliant with the FSMA specifications that are being implemented over the next two years.

The FDA Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), is the most sweeping reform of our food safety laws in more than 70 years. It aims to ensure the U.S. food supply is safe by shifting the focus from responding to contamination to preventing it.
