AA GFSI Certification

Harris Tea Foodservice is GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative) certified AA through BRCGS (Brand Reputation through Compliance Global Standards). We are the first tea manufacturer to achieve this certification.

Thorough Steam Sanitization Process

We’re also proud to be the first US tea manufacturer to implement a steam sanitization process for all herbs. This uses gentle, moist heat to safeguard product quality by destroying salmonella and E. coli bacteria. It is a 100% natural method that employs no chemicals or radiation whatsoever. Furthermore, to maintain product integrity we customize this steam sanitization treatment for each herb.
