We know it is important for our customers to know the food they are purchasing is safe and manufactured in a properly licensed food facility. Many times, people purchase food on the internet where the products quite possibly have been made in someone's home. Although this is legal in some municipalities across the US, it is substandard for doing business on the internet.
Daffy Farms dba as Daffy Apple Corp, is located in a licensed food manufacturing facility at 11075 East 47th Avenue in Denver, Colorado. The Daffy Apple facility is zoned F-1/Food Processing by the City and County of Denver under permit number 03079174. We do not sell or manufacture anything outside this facility.
Daffy Farms operates with a full food safety program guided by HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and the new FDA FSMA Rules. This ensures we operate in a sanitary, safe and quality controlled system with a full Food Safety System. Daffy Apple has successfully completed years of third party audits.

Daffy Apple uses only fresh Ready to Eat apples that have been sanitized twice before being turned into a caramel apple. First the apples are washed and sanitized at the packing house near the orchard where the apples were picked. Before the apples are shipped to Daffy Apple, they are tested by IEH Analytical Laboratories, an independent lab, to ensure no harmful pathogens are present on the apples. After the apples are shipped to us, Daffy Apple then sanitizes the apples again at our facility using the most advanced UV apple sanitizing system in the industry. UV light has been proven effective in killing harmful bacteria.
