Spotlight on the Kingsburg Center

The new facility is a welcome addition for the company and the community. The laboratory is triple the size of the previous Fresno location and immediately brings 30 full time jobs to the city of Kingsburg. Located just off Highway 99 at the Kingsburg Business Park, the 20,408 square foot building now houses the former Fresno-based South Valley Laboratory equipment and the DFA of California inspection services for dried fruit and tree nuts.

The goal of the research division at Safe Food Alliance is to solve problems in the agriculture and food industries with a focus in the following areas:

Post-Harvest Quality
How can a commodity get from field to the end user with an optimum level of quality and safety while insuring compliance with regulatory requirements? Safe Food Alliance has participated in fumigation research to overcome barriers to agricultural trade in the international marketplace for decades.

Analytical Methodology
What’s in your food, in your field or in your facility? Safe Food Alliance develops novel methods to detect compounds of interest in food or in the field, including work with complex matricies, as well as new, reactive, or otherwise difficult to measure analytes.

Environmental Fate and Transport
Are the agrichemicals that you apply in the form you need for efficacy? What chemical transformations of these materials occur in the field? Research in this are tracks the changes in a compound as it moves throughout the environment.

FDA Detention: What is it & What Do We Do About It

Detention; a word associated with childhood pranks, the principal’s office, guilt, and remorse. In a similar fashion, receiving notice from the United States (US) government that your facility’s products have been detained can also trigger those negative childhood emotions.
