× Food Safety Quality Assurance

Food Safety

LeaderBrand is a grower, packer and shipper.  We can therefore trace every crate of LeaderBrand sweet corn back to the field it was grown in; from there we can provide the crop history from the field.

LeaderBrand runs it’s own independently verified food safety programme.

The programme incorporates internationally recognised standards of agricultural production, product safety, traceability and record-keeping.

Quality Assurance/Handling

As the Grower, Packer and Transporter LeaderBrand controls Quality throughout the production, packing and delivery process. 

How to Select:

Choose ears of sweet corn that have fresh, green, succulent husks. Feel each ear through the husk, without peeling it, to check for even plump kernels. 

How to Store:

Leave the husks on to help retain moisture and store uncovered in the refrigerator.  Corn should be consumed within 2 days of purchase.
