Pesticide Control

Pacific Coast Producers follows all necessary precautions to make sure that our products are safe. A list of acceptable pesticides are obtained from the California League of Food Processors and is given to each grower at the beginning of the year. Each of our district managers collects pesticide reports from each of their growers to ensure that only legal pesticides are applied to their Crops. Prior to harvest, random samples are taken from the fields and analyzed for compliance. If there is any residue from an illegal pesticide, or too much of a legal pesticide, our cannery will reject the fruit.
