TM.
We do all that is possible to ensure safe, healthy, and delicious watermelons for our customers.

                          
Food safety is becoming a very important part of the fresh produce industry. We have passed GFSI and Harmonized standard Audits at our Packing facilties and Farms. At Kid's Choice Watermelons, the safety and quality of our watermelons are a primary concern.  Throughout the entire growing season, steps are taken to ensure that our watermelons our grown and packed using good agricultural practices (GAP).   We have also completed HACCP certification at UGA.

Even though we do everything possible to ship clean, safe, delicious watermelons that are free of contanimants.We do not have control of them after they leave our facilities. Therefore you should always Wash your produce before consumption.

Preparation Tips:

WASH hands with warm water and soap for 20 seconds before and after handling food.

WASH cutting boards, dishes, utensils, and counter tops with hot soapy water after preparing each food item and before you go on to the next food.

RINSE fruits and vegetables under running tap water, including those with skins and rinds that are not eaten.
