“We treat our farm as a living member of our family.”
Floyd Griffin, Founder
Healthy living, safety and accountability
These values are paramount at Misionero Vegetables and Seminis Vegetable Seeds, the
growers and creators of Lettuce Jammers™. So of course, all Lettuce Jammers™
are grown, packed and shipped in accordance those standards. The goal at Misionero
Vegetables is to meet consumer needs without compromising the ability of future
generations to also obtain those same priorities. It is Misionero’s personal
pledge to minimize impact on the land through: organic farming, careful stewardship of
our ground, protecting and respecting our water supply, while also creating as safe work
place for our employees.
Together, Misionero and Seminis, have turned to nature itself to provide positive
solutions for disease control and increased food production. This is done through natural
breeding and plant selection, careful crop rotation, using integrated pest management
and extensive use of soil building over crops. Misionero’s conventionally grown
crops are produced using many of the organic farming techniques learned over the years
with the goal of minimizing the use of man made pesticides, herbicides and fertilizers.
At Misionero, food safety and proper handling is key. We have our own state-of-the-art
testing facility and dutifully exercise pre-harvest testing and good agricultural
practices. All organic and conventionally grown Misionero products are grown under a
strict Good Agricultural Practices (GAP) program ensuring that the bounty meets all
state, federal and international regulations. You can also be confident that all
Misionero products are grown, harvested, processed and cooled under Good Manufacturing
Practices (GMP) Guidelines. Misionero’s salad processing plants are operated
under guidelines and are inspected by various governmental and third party
inspection teams and audit programs. All of Misionero’s products are exclusively
grown in the United States in Salinas, California and Yuma, Arizona.
Oh, and by the way, here at Misionero our responsibility to the environment dos not
end at the grocery store shelf; we use only fully recyclable lettuce cartons to
prevent landfill solid waste. Have confidence in the fact that sustainable agriculture
is full circle at Misionero.
We care about your health, and the health and safety your loved ones.
