We understand the wholesale and retail business inside and out.
We are a third generation family-owned and operated farm in Lancaster, PA and have been a trusted partner to regional retailers since 1983, earning trust through honesty, integrity and transparency. We don’t cut corners. We take pride in our product and are third-party audited, MGAP and FSMA compliant.
We stick to what we know — focusing on locally grown products. Our passion for mushrooms is legendary. We are actively involved in helping to grow consumer interest and preference for mushrooms — investing time in the future of the industry through participation in the Mushroom Council and other similar organizations.
We believe in being personally involved with every customer. Large enough to fill our customer’s demands for product we’re also small enough to stay nimble and respond to customer’s needs.
At the Forefront of Food Safety
To be your Perfect Partner, we must make certain our products are grown and handled with the highest standards, from our farms to your table. Your peace of mind is important to us.
To remain at the forefront of food safety, Buona Foods has completed its Global Food Safety Certification through PrimusLabs. GFS Certification is an initiative throughout the fresh produce industry to improve handling, processing, packaging, and traceability of products as they move through the supply chain. We also implemented an extensive third-party audit of all processes to assure compliance with Mushroom Good Agricultural Practices (MGAP), a strict criteria developed in part by the American Mushroom Institute specific to the production and handling of fresh mushrooms. We are proud that both Buona Foods and Bella Farms are MGAP-certified operations.
Buona Foods utilizes the Hazard Analysis & Critical Control Points (HACCP) for our production facility. HACCP standards and procedures are consistent with current food safety guidelines for the fresh product industry set forth by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA). We have an effective environmental management plan in place which includes proactive posture with food safety hazards, team hygiene and field sanitation, water purification program, and integrated pest management.The Buona Foods family has also incorporated mushroom nutritional labeling. We want our customers to know that mushrooms are an excellent source of a variety of B-vitamins, vitamin D and minerals!
