At Florida Food Products, we provide our customers with nature’s finest ingredients to help them deliver the clean label products today’s consumers demand.

From juice extraction to concentration, fermentation, membrane filtration, drying, blending, standardization, and packaging, Florida Food Products operates a highly flexible, multi-faceted production facility. Every step of our processes adheres to strict SQF Level 2 requirements, ensuring the safest, highest quality ingredients.

Supply Chain

Our natural ingredients are carefully sourced from grower partners that we know and trust.  Raw material inconsistencies and availability can create challenges with ingredient quality and reliability of supply, so we leverage our long-term, domestic grower relationships to provide our customers with uniform, in-spec ingredients throughout the year.

Procurement

FFP has decades of expertise in, and has spent significant time and capital optimizing, the global procurement of plant-based, natural / clean label input.

  • Secured year-round access to vegetables with redundant sources of supply
  • Longstanding, often contractual, relationships with growers of celery, beets, onions, carrots, and cucumbers, geographically dispersed throughout the United States
