Compliance Program

GAR Bennett understands the difficulties in farming, and we have developed an outstanding, time saving solution to address food and worker safety compliance requirements. GAR Bennett’s food safety program covers the Food Safety Modernization Ace (FSMA), GLOBALG.A.P. and PrimusGFS. Our Worker Safety program complies with the Department of Pesticide (DPR), Cal/OSHA Worker Safety Training regulations. All our programs are tailored to fit each grower’s operational requirements and are offered as either partial or full programs.

Proper training, adherence and monitoring protects your workers from injuries and reduces your operational costs, worker compensation claims and insurance premiums. Maintaining your GFSI certification and advancing in Good Agricultural Practices keeps your export program on par with FDA regulations.

We use GAR Bennett because we find that there are regulations that we don’t even know exist, so it is a big cost benefit to have GAR Bennett on our team. We can be freed up to do what we do for a living. We are worry free and assured that we are in compliance.
