Quality starts in the field, but it doesn’t end there. Mission Produce™ owns some of the most advanced avocado-specific packing facilities in North and South America. Mission is vertically integrated and expertly manages every detail throughout its global supply chain network to promote safety, consistency, and quality on every order.
Mission Produce participates and supports the strict guidelines set forth by the U.S. Customs and Border Protection's (CBP) Customs Trade Partnership Against Terrorism (CTPAT) program in an effort to strengthen and improve international supply chain security. This partnership shows Mission Produce's commitment to protecting the supply chain from criminal activities such as drug trafficking, terrorism, human smuggling, illegal contraband, cyber terrorism, and agricultural contaminants.
Conceived shortly after the 9/11 attacks to protect our supply chains from terrorism, the program is a critical component of CBP's cargo enforcement strategy. CTPAT has grown to be one of the largest and most successful public-private sector partnerships in the world. Mission Produce is proud to partner with U.S. Customs to help secure international trade programs.
