About Apple Leaf
Apple Leaf was founded in 2003 out of a need to provide services and unbiased information to help growers manage their production and satisfy markets and consumer demands.
Integrity and objectiveness of our data are at the core of our business. We are a private firm with no affiliation or ties to agriculture product-based companies. Our goal is to provide our clients with unbiased, real-time information to aid in their ability to manage pests and commodities. We do not peddle Agro-company sales lines or products.
By using Apple Leaf’s scientifically proven Integrated Pest Management (IPM) technologies, or latest trends in organic practices, our clients make cost-effective decisions about pest management and crop health, which, in turn, strengthens their bottom-line.
Apple Leaf also provides auditing services for food safety requirements including but not limited to: GlobalGap Fruit and Vegetable, SQF 1000 and 2000 series, and BRC certifications.
