From farm to kettle, best practices programs provide a framework to ensure consistent standards and traceability to deliver reliable, premium quality hops to brewers. Excellent third-party audited programs are available to growers in the Pacific Northwest, but expansion of hop production to new regions across the country requires a broadly accessible program available to any grower supplying hops commercially. The USA Hops Best Practices program provides a sustainability and food safety framework for all growers.
