BACKWARD INTEGRATION

We obsess so you don’t have to.

Food safety and quality control begin at the farm, long before seeds are planted. Soil analysis, seed selection and seedling care are critical to the final product.  We take care, managing our products from start to finish.

 

Our ongoing commitment to traceability and backward integration is demonstrated by our pesticide and allergen management programs.  Once pesticides and allergens are introduced, their impact cannot be reversed.  Our programs allow us to confidently meet stringent regulatory requirements.

This diligence is continued throughout the entire supply chain, creating transparency and consistency. Strict food safety and quality controls are intertwined throughout processing, packaging, transportation and storage. Buchanan is proud to have a history of zero recalls.
