Food Safety

Flavor And Quality.

At Lopez Foods, we take an extremely conservative approach to food safety, which is why each of our plants test our products every hour to ensure their safety and quality in our onsite labs.

Lopez Foods is a Bioterrorism Act compliant company and has a robust environmental Listeria testing program. Fresh beef suppliers are required to provide a Certificate of Assurance (COA) before any raw material is allowed inside our facilities.

Lopez manages its protein suppliers via an Approved Supplier List, engaging third-party audits of each supplier annually. These ensure that our suppliers are meeting the standards of the Global Food Safety Initiative and our own strict purchase specifications.

Lopez also undergoes third-party audits of all our facilities. It is our commitment to setting, meeting, and exceeding safety standards that has earned us a British Retail Consortium certification with the top rating “A.”
