On Time and In Great Shape
Most people think of warehouses as large buildings with lots of racks storing products. Not terribly interesting, and merely a sideline to day-to-day business operations.
At G&C, nothing could be further from the truth. Our Syracuse-based, state-of-the-art warehouse is an integral part of our overall Company business strategy. Through this busy hub of shipping and receiving we supply our customers with over 4,000 product types nearly every day of the year.
Dozens of daily workers in the G&C warehouse are equipped with the latest in material handling equipment and warehouse management systems. Incoming loads are scanned, identified by location and date, then organized and stored in wide-aisle shelving.
Computer monitored temperatures keep millions of pounds of food in perfect condition prior to being shipped to customers. Once en route, satellite tracking and communication with our drivers in a fleet of modern trucks gives us the advantage of delivering products on time and in great shape.
In the rare event of power outage, we maintain a massive backup generator to keep the entire facility running. These are just a few of the things that make a difference in the service G&C offers.
HACCP - Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP)
G&C Foods complies with HACCP, a USDA/FDA developed program designed to address food safety and safe handling concerns in food related industries. HACCP practices extend throughout the food supply chain, from harvest to the consumer table, making sure that safe and wholesome products are delivered under strict independent government guidelines.
Though compliance with HACCP is voluntary, we think it’s the smart thing to do. So we do it.
Custom Regulated Temperature Control
Part of HACCP compliance involves regulation and control of product and storage temperatures in various areas of the warehouse.
With this kind of attention to detail, boxed beef is just the right temperature, frozen foods are free of freezer burn, cheeses are cool and entrees frozen solid. That's the way it should be.
Split Box Program
To meet the varied needs of our customers and offer more ordering choice G&C operates a USDA piece room in strict compliance with government regulations.
Master cases of beef and pork are re-packed into smaller boxes that are more manageable for the end user. An extensive line of popular items are regularly stocked and available for immediate purchase, including Choice & Select Rib Eyes, Strips, and two piece PSMOS.
Products are also available for custom packing by customer request.
