Wholesale food manufacturing and storage


We inspect and regulate the manufacture, distribution and storage of food, including all food intended for human consumption.

  • Companies in our program typically distribute their products to other manufacturers or to retail locations, such as restaurants or grocery stores.
  • We ensure all food products regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration are manufactured, distributed and stored under safe and sanitary conditions.
    • These don’t include meat and poultry, which are regulated by the U.S. Department of Agriculture. 
  • All companies in the program must be approved through a registration process, and we may conduct reviews of product labels.
  • The Milk and Dairy Program pages address regulations for milk products, including:
    • Fluid milk.
    • Butter.
    • Cottage cheese.
    • Hard cheese.
    • Soft cheese.
    • Ice cream.
    • Sherbet.
