"There is an enormous amount of verification and process documentation," said Rising Sun Farms founder Elizabeth Fujas, whose firm holds Level 3 certification, the highest standard.

Rising Sun has two staff members - a production quality manager and an SQF practitioner - assigned to record findings and vet suppliers.
"We have to do a certificate of analysis with every shipment that the product has been lab tested for yeast, mold and all kinds of bacteria," Fujas said.

"There is an enormous amount of verification and process documentation," said Rising Sun Farms founder Elizabeth Fujas, whose firm holds Level 3 certification, the highest standard. Rising Sun has two staff members a production quality manager and an SQF practitioner assigned to record findings and vet suppliers. "We have to do a certificate of analysis with every shipment that the product has been lab tested for yeast, mold and all kinds of bacteria," Fujas said. "It's expensive, but it's a very good process." Rising Sun Farms has about 125 suppliers, including 20 from Oregon and five in Jackson County. Certification standards have modestly thinned the ranks of suppliers, some who didn't want to deal with the extra costs, she said. "We didn't lose a lot, but we lost some that are hard to replace," Fujas said.

Food safety and quality control are a part of the growing cost to consumers, Fujas said. "We haven't really increased our prices," she said. "But prices escalate as distributors want higher margins when their cost of business is higher. Whether for labor issues or insurance, the cost of doing business has gone up. Retailers are looking for higher margins, too." Rising Sun's business model has evolved for a number of reasons. There is no longer an in-house sales and wine tasting room. The recession played a role as did traffic patterns, Fujas said. The production line runs three overlapping shifts 14 hours a day, Monday through Thursday, with a staff of 35 much of the year, expanding to 65 during the fall as holiday inventory is built up. Elizabeth and Richard Fujas launched their enterprise in 1982, pioneering the use of organic ingredients in their tortas.
