Silva’s international quality control team aids in managing the GAP and GMP practices at the fresh side of the supply chain. Our commitment has always been from the field to the finished products we produce. The efforts of this team include work at the field with soil testing, pesticide management, and supervision during the growing seasons. Assistance is also given at the dehydration side after harvesting, which includes facility audits and process control programs. In addition, we ensure continuing education occurs at this section of our supply chain, hosting regional workshop events to continue to bring helpful assistance to our farming and dehydration partners.Learn About Our Sustainability Efforts
