Food Safety Certifications
With increased governmental and consumer interest in food safety, regulatory compliance and product traceability are more important than ever. LiDestri is unquestionably an industry leader in these areas, operating SQF, level-3-certified, state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in Fairport, NY; Rochester, NY; Fresno, CA; Lansdale, PA; and Pennsauken, NJ.
With the highest levels of food safety currently measured, all facilities are one full certification level above the standards that will be required by the U.S. Food Safety and Modernization Act. Certain facilities are certified kosher and/or Organic-CCOF and USDA Organic Certified.
On the spirits side, LiDestri’s facility features an explosion-proof system and covers the requirements of the New York State Liquor Authority. The site is also fully bonded and third-party audited.
At LiDestri Food and Drink, we believe it is critical to maintain the highest ethical standards and uphold the compliance laws of every state where we have a presence. The California Transparency in Supply Chain Act of 2010 (SB-657) requires retail sellers and manufacturers doing business in the state to disclose their efforts to eliminate slavery and human trafficking from their supply chain. We are proud of our complete compliance with this law through our vigorous efforts to evaluate and continually monitor the products we acquire from our suppliers. Our guidelines and procedures in this area allow us to clearly communicate our expectations to our suppliers; make responsible and informed purchasing decisions; and monitor and improve our supply chain on an ongoing basis not just in California but in every state where we have a presence.
