Food Safety

BC’s tree fruit growers are recognized as leaders in food safety.

Protecting our health and environment

Food safety starts in the orchard: our growers follow environmentally and ecologically friendly growing methods, in accordance to the Integrated Fruit Production Guide issued by the BCFGA.

BC fruit growers are always seeking new opportunities and ways to improve on-farm and food safety, working with governments and other industry organizations to ensure an optimal “farm to fork” safety. Through their cooperative and private packers, BC growers certify their food safety through a variety of recognized programs, including:

  • Safe Quality Foods
  • GlobalGAP
  • CanadaGAP

Almost all growers maintain food safety certification.
