Onions 52 Inc. is reinforcing its commitment to food safety through the Produce Marketing Association Gold Circle Campaign for Food Safety.
By participating in the PMA Gold Circle Campaign for Food Safety, Syracuse, Utah-based Onions 52 joins more than 350 fresh produce suppliers and buyers — from growers and distributors to retailers, foodservice operators and solutions providers.
“We wanted to make a difference and take a leadership role within the industry,” Director of Marketing and Business Development Falon Brawley said. “Research and continuing education are indispensable measures for recall prevention throughout the produce supply chain. Initiating comprehensive, prevention-based controls to prevent or significantly minimize the likelihood of food safety issues arising is essential in our industry.”
In addition to PMA’s Gold Circle Campaign for Food Safety, Onions 52 is certified by PrimusGFS and the Equitable Food Initiative.
PMA founded the Gold Circle Campaign to address the industry’s challenge of increasing food production with fewer resources while bolstering confidence in the safety of fresh fruits and vegetables.
The campaign funds research and education delivered by dozens of research-based organizations, including the Center for Produce Safety at the University of California-Davis. CPS focuses on prevention research that delivers real-world solutions applicable to the entire produce supply chain.
