SunGarden® Fresh Living is a proud producer of Fresh Sprouts and Sprout Powders, the Original Super Food. For generations, Sprouts have been considered the most nutritious produce available and consumed by those looking to add nutrition, unique taste, and appeal to salads, sandwiches, and upscale food presentations. With worldwide consumer demand for our products continuing to increase, we are thrilled to supply these highly nutritious products.
Best-in-class food safety systems are a key part of why SunGarden® Fresh Living is recognized as one of the world leaders in the industry. Having already exceeded the industry standard with an SQF level 2 certification SunGarden® Fresh Living has decided to take it up a notch with an NSF GMP certification. This is an unprecedented level of food safety and represents as a whole the values of SunGarden®.
So what is NSF and why is this an achievement? NSF certification is key to ensuring products meet strict standards for public health protection. If for any reason a product fails to meet one or more certification criteria, NSF will take enforcement actions, including product recall, public notification, or de-certification.
With origins tracing back to 1944 when it began at the University of Michigan as the National Sanitation Foundation to standardize sanitation and food safety requirements. NSF initially established safety standards for things like soda fountains and cooking equipment, but eventually expanded beyond sanitation standards to test and certify products in multiple industries to verify that an industry’s products were meeting NSF-developed health and safety standards.
The NSF’s ongoing auditing function is the key difference of their certification program. Other third-party programs might only audit a company once, so there is no guarantee to consumers that the company’s product will consistently be made with the same standards. It is this function that shows the dedication that SunGarden® Fresh Living has to provide the world’s safest products.
SunGarden® Fresh Living has been providing the highest quality sprouts since 1979. We grow and sell Alfalfa, Clover, Radish, Mung Bean, and Broccoli Sprouts. All sprouts are carefully grown and harvested in our state-of-the-art facility while best-in-class food safety systems ensure our sprouts are the safest in the industry.
