The Produce Connection has high criteria for product inspection and acceptance of product.
On site The Produce Connection procurement, quality, and inventory control personnel assess the quality of all products at the time of arrival. On hand products are inspected on a daily basis and final inspection is performed at the time of product consolidation and loading by both USDA inspectors and The Produce Connection quality control personal. An in-house inspection is made to insure that all fruit and vegetables are free from decay, scale, and also to guarantee that size, sugar content, cosmetic appearance, carton condition and packaging, and temperature at time of receipt all possess characteristics normally associated with DSCP quality.
No Product is shipped without insuring that it has the shelf life required to make it to its destination as US #1 or better.
The Produce Connection only purchases product from high quality growers/packers and shippers. We purchase directly from the growing area, not from other street markets.
