How does THRIVE ensure the quality of the foods?
We start by sourcing the best available raw ingredients or products. This often involves several, if not dozens, of sources. We send our samples to a panel of food experts including Chef Todd Leonard, who test the products in real-world applications and compare them against other products. We collect their feedback and when we find a product that passes our standards, we release a new THRIVE item. Much of the time, new products do not pass our tests and we continue our search. For those products that do pass the test, our next objective is to ensure that the flavor, texture, and freshness is present in every can. We go to great lengths to ensure that our processes result in the best in quality and food safety. We don’t outsource our production, we do it right here in our facility in American Fork. Our plant is FDA and USDA certified and inspected. We have developed processes and procedures for food safety that are certified and backed up by a certified HACCP program. We use a third-party food safety auditing firm to evaluate our processes and give us objective feedback. We test our products for microbiological contaminates. We even have a full-time Quality Assurance Manager, whose only job is to ensure each can is prepared in a way that ensures the quality of our products.
