As of late Dec. 2017 we proudly  became  GAP & GHP CERTIFIED (Good  Agricultural and Good Handling Practices)  by the USDA (US Dept. of Agriculture) and have been recertified each year since.

Diane  attended multiple preparatory sessions with local farmers to create a Food Facility plan which includes procedures for emergencies, traceability and hygiene.

Diane worked closely with the USDA inspectors to write a manual which  explains  practices/procedures for  the high standards expected at the packing facility in Cutchogue. Check our links for the GAP/GHP certificate.

Diane also worked closely with our foreman, Walter,  to implement safety and food safety plans for our packing facility. Following COVID  we created  health safety regulations which are revised/distributed every season prior to packing. 

For 14+ years Shulman has made  inroads in "green initiatives"with an 80 panel photo-voltaic/solar system to supply electric for our facility in Cutchogue, Long Island. We obtained grants from the US Dept. of Agriculture as an agricultural small business, the Federal Government and LIPA. See the video to learn about our acquisition and how you can go green, too!
