Being a supplier of a natural product it’s imperative that we keep a clean and sanitary plant and workforce in order to ensure our almonds are safe and employees are happy. We realize how important this is not only to the consumer but also for the reputation of our company. Riverwest prides itself in going above and beyond basic food safety standards. Listed below are some of the Good Manufacturing Practices that Riverwest adheres to.
