Assuring Food Quality & Safety
Our first commitment is to consumers and customers, in the form of safe, high-quality dairy products. There is no room for exceptions to this rule and we adhere to the systems and practices that guarantee safety all the way through our supply chain.
Darigold customers – food and beverage companies, large grocery chains, parents preparing healthy meals for their children, chefs in bakeries and restaurants, and nutritionists in hospitals, senior centers and school lunchrooms – have come to trust the exceptional quality of Darigold’s full range of products. There is good reason for this trust.
Darigold's core mission is to provide families around the world with nutritious, safe milk and dairy products.
We closely monitor quality from the farm through hauling, processing and transportation. Darigold has a perfect record with zero regulatory violations for food safety, labeling, or advertising.
Darigold’s processing plant food safety measures include:
- Fully implemented Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)
- Compliance with Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
- Audits by the British Retail Consortium (BRC)
- Compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA).
Darigold approaches food safety and security as an extremely high priority. Darigold leads the Traceability Subcommittee of the Innovation Center for US Dairy, an initiative to make the US the global leader in the ability to trace the milk supply back the farm. Traceability allows the dairy industry to quickly isolate products to protect public health in the event of a safety issue.
Darigold was the first US producer to implement the guidelines for the entire production system of milk.
