Food Quality & Safety.
Our commitment to food quality and safety goes back through four generations of love and dedication to the dried fruit, nut and seed industry. Bedemco only uses high-quality ingredients from the best suppliers around the world to meet our customers’ wants and needs. We continue to stay up-to-date with the industries’ best practices and any new regulations that take place. Our products are always carefully inspected to ensure the health and safety of our customers.
At Bedemco, our corporate goal is to bring the North American food industry and consumers the finest quality products grown and processed under Good Manufacturing Principles (GMP). We work with processors to develop up-to-date HACCP plans and all of our products are Kosher certified.
Through our active participation in trade groups including the Association for Food Industries (AFI) and Peanut & Tree Nut Processors Association, we continuously strive to improve standards and encourage ethical business practices both abroad and in North America. We take an active role in developing industry wide product specifications, participate in arbitration panels to enforce international contractual obligations, and contribute to promotional initiatives of benefit and value to consumers.
Our involvement in these activities helps insure that customers receive the best quality products in the most cost effective and time efficient manner. In these changing times, we also recognize our responsibility to our fellow citizens by actively participating in the U.S. C-TPAT anti-terrorism program.
We strive to source products that are free of Genetic Modification (GMO Free) when possible. We actively source additive free and Certified Organic products. Our conventional products meet the highest industry and regulatory standards. Our in-house Quality Control Department is committed to providing safe and high-quality products to our customers.
Our products are Kosher certified by Star-K. We offer Kosher for Passover products seasonally as well as Kosher supervised retail co-packing services. All products listed are certified Kosher in whole, diced, paste and butter forms.
We are certified by the Ohio Ecological Food and Farm Association (OEFFA). Bedemco offers certified organic products under the USDA’s National Organic Program as well as Canadian and European Union Compliant Organic Products.
As a certified member of Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT), we follow the highest security standards for our imported products. Our participation in CTPAT and commitment to food security has given us priority importing status and enhanced control over the quality and safety of our imported products.
