Mendocino Mustard Passes Good Manufacturing Practices Inspection
September 22, 2016
Great news! We passed our Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) inspection, scoring 840 out of 1000 possible. We are told that a score of 840 is exceptional for a first inspection, and that much larger and very well-known food companies have a hard time scoring over 800.
Why have a 3rd party food inspection? Well, a GMP inspection is in addition to the regular inspections conducted by the FDA and the California Department of Public Health.
Buying from a small, gourmet mustard maker is great, but it is important for you to know that our artisanal mustard meets and exceeds industry standards for food safety, personnel practices, and cleaning practices.
In short, it ensures that we produce only safe, high quality Mendocino Mustard, allowing us to become better mustard makers.
