Quality Standards

A commitment to safety and quality assurance underlies our operational excellence.

  • Certified organic handlers by the USDA

  • Regular, rigorous audits by third-party safety specialists

  • Each of our farm partners follow Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) in order to provide safe, quality produce

Committed to delivering the freshest products to our customers, we pursue excellence in every area of safety and quality assurance. We value our customers and their trust; the quality and safety of the products we distribute is central to how we do business. Our staff is carefully trained in allergen handling, cross-contamination, HACCP, sanitation, and food defense.

On a continual basis a third-party auditor visits our facilities to perform a rigorous inspection of our building and our overall processes for distribution and storage. We are proud to consistently receive achieve superior ratings in Good Distribution Practices.

Black River supports local agriculture in many ways.  Perhaps the most important is that they pay a good price for quality.  They also understand that raising animals can be a challenge and that farmers often have to deal with unexpected issues. Black River has always been supportive and flexible.  I always feel that we are part of a team striving to bring the best possible product to the consumer.
