Russel has also received a Certificate of Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), HACCP Based from the US Department of Agriculture.  HACCP or Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point is a process that has been established for juice, meat, poultry and seafood to prevent food borne illness.  GMP assures that proper food handling procedures are followed and a healthy and sanitized work environment is maintained.
