Regulatory Requirements

Regulatory Compliance
Peterson Farms conducts its business in compliance with all local, state, federal, and international laws and regulations of all countries we provide products to. We are in compliance with the CODEX Alimentarius Commission Guidelines for the application of HACCP Principles & System, Title 21 CFR 110 regarding food, and the International Code of Practice – General Principles of Food Hygiene (CAC.2001). Peterson Farms policy is to comply to the fullest extent not only with the letter but also with the spirit of the laws which govern and regulate the food industry.

As the FDA Food Modernization Act (FSMA) was recently signed into law, Peterson Farms will continue to be in compliance with all provisions of the law as it is implemented, focusing on food safety prevention and inspection. Refer to the details on the FDA FSMA site.

Peterson Farms has electronic access to food and environmental regulations. Staff members use these resources assisted by professional counsel when necessary to ensure that finished product meets regulatory requirements in domestic and international markets.

The facilities at Peterson Farms have been constructed and maintained to meet Codex General Principles for Food Hygiene. All our facilities are licensed by the State of Michigan as Food Establishments.

Our Peterson Farms plants are registered FDA Food Facilities in compliance and in accordance under Public Health Security and the Bioterriorism Preparedness and Response Act of 2002.
