Food Safety and Product Quality are primary objectives of the Los Angeles Salad Company. Our Quality Assurance department audits all phases of the operation, from growing and harvesting to packing and shipping.

QA labWe maintain an on-site laboratory, as well as subcontract Primus Labs and Michelson Labs, to perform extensive microbiological tests as outlined by the HACCP (Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points) program. The program includes testing water at source, incoming raw product inspection, production process testing, finished product testing, as well as environmental testing to assure proper plant sanitation.

Our facilities are regularly audited by third party laboratories and are GFSI and NSF certified. All our farms are run under strict GAP (Good Agricultural Practices) standards. Our facilities follow GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) and are regularly inspected by the USDA (U.S. Department of Agriculture) and county health department.
