MIC Receives Global Food Safety Certification

Miami-based integrated farm-to-distributor offers ready-to-heat frozen products for restaurants and food service clients throughout the US and in Europe.

MIC Food, the United States’ largest importer of frozen plantains and other tropical fruits and vegetables to the food service industry, announced this week that its Latin American production facilities have received the Food Safety System Certification 22000 (FSSC 22000). The designation is reserved for companies that can demonstrate compliance with the ISO-based internationally accepted program for assessment and certification of food safety management systems in the whole supply chain and is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

"Our mission is to make it easier for restaurants and the food industry in general to use delicious, authentic value-added tropical products that are easy and convenient to use,” said Alfredo Lardizabal, General Manager for MIC Food. “In a highly competitive environment, we are pleased to differentiate our products as some of the few of this type that come from FSSC 22000 certified processing facilities. Our customers deserve the best ingredients and state-of-the-art processes. This certification further proves that MIC Food delivers on its promise to provide only the finest products to our clients.”
