Food Safety

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

Quality Assurance/Handling

LeaderBrand has invested huge research into understanding how to maintain the highest level of freshness and quality. 

Quality cannot be improved after harvest, only maintained; therefore it is important to harvest fruit and vegetables at peak quality. Immature or over mature produce may not last as long in storage as that picked at the ideal maturity.
