Clear Springs Packing, LLC, operates a 103,000 square foot facility that offers a wide range of services including:
- CONTROLLED ATMOSPHERE CHAMBER STORAGE
- RECEIVING AND STORAGE OF PRE-PACKAGED PRODUCT
The heart of the facility is the state-of-the-art grading and packing area. Here, Clear Springs grades and packs fresh products from the Clear Springs’ Farms.
The Clear Springs Packing and Distribution facility has the unique ability to store produce for a period up to six weeks using any of our 38 Controlled Atmosphere Chambers, each with a six-pallet storage capacity.
Clear Springs also has a unique pre-packaged receiving area which allows refrigerated product to be received into an air-lock chamber without breaking the cold chain. This step is critical to the integrity of the product.
For product arriving unrefrigerated, six pre-cool tunnels are available to allow product to reach its final destination in the freshest state possible.
The 20,000 square foot refrigerated area allows for segregation of product by pack size and customer, for storage, and staging for shipping.
Food Safety and Traceability
Clear Springs is committed to the guidelines necessary for safe produce handling. In every case, Clear Springs firmly upholds USDA’s Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Good Agricultural Practices (GAP). These certifications contribute to our promise to ensure the safest procedures and operations possible. HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) procedures are in place in our facility and strengthen safety and quality control actions.
All areas of food safety at Clear Springs are carefully and efficiently maintained. A group of independent third party auditors conduct annual verification of the facility and farm safe food practices in all facets of our operations.
Our facility uses a unique package coding process that guarantees instant traceability all the way back to the specific farm at which the produce originated, as well as the exact date and time our facility received the produce. This process also tracks complete distribution point identifications.
