“Food safety is of highest importance here at Frieda’s,” Jackie Caplan Wiggins, Frieda’s vice president and chief operating officer, said in a news release. “Not only do we apply the strictest of requirements to our own facility, our supplier-partners all must adhere to the same high standards.
Based on April’s audit, Frieda’s received a score of 99.35% on the PrimusGFS Packinghouse Audit, the highest global standard. The score is higher than the 99.26% Frieda’s received last year. The Primus GFS audit was performed by PrimusLabs.
