Our team is specifically trained to assist our customers in understanding food purchasing, inventory management, and menu analysis.
Advanced Product Tracking Capabilities, in order to comply with HACCP regulations it is necessary for Local & Turtle to know exactly where each case of product is within our distribution network and facility at any given time, from the moment the product comes in our door until it reaches your door.
To do this we affix a custom bar code sticker to each and every case, allowing us to track where and when each case shipped, down to the specific order, delivered to a specific customer, at a specific time on a specific day. With this kind of tracking if ever need to retrieve any product for whatever reason (quality, safety recalls, special picks), we know exactly where to find each and every case of product in question. Food safety and integrity is insured.
