7. How do you handle the pesticide and other issues at the farms ?
There are adequate controls to ensure that individual farm locations are monitored for compliance as per USDA standards. Our Internal Inspectors visit the farms at regular intervals and also conduct surprise visits to the farms to find out if there is any usage of unallowed substances. The stock is also inspected before it is brought to our storage point and tagged by our inspectors. The packing material is checked to see that we are not using recycled bags in which fertilizer/pesticide or chemicals was packed. For this we buy new bags for each locations.
The transport is by our own trucks and hence there is no risk of cross contamination. Even if we hire truck or jeep we do not use trucks/jeeps which are not clean. As soon as the product is brought to the processing unit, the in house Quality Assurance lab personnel draws the sample. At random, we send the raw material to external labs for pesticide residue analysis.
In the processing unit we do not use any pesticide or fumigation. We have put in place a number of barriers, mechanical and ultraviolet traps to prevent insect and rodent entry. Besides this the entire area is cleaned rigorously to prevent any infestation. We also have a rigorous SSOP in place at all our production sites. The machinery is capable of removing the physical contaminants and our steam sterilization unit (for pepper, ginger and turmeric) can ensure that product is microbiologically safe. Throughout the processing we draw samples and see if the product matches customer spec and/or the international cleanliness standards for spices (ASTA/ESA/USFDA etc). Since we do not handle any conventional spices there is no scope for cross contamination.
