Commodity Inspection

DFA has provided commodity inspection services for over 100 years, making our inspection program one of the most recognized and requested worldwide. We can inspect commodities to USDA standards or custom-tailor our inspection criteria to meet buyers’ needs.

We provide both incoming (provides grower payment and processing information for handlers) and outbound (ensures quality to the customer and processing feedback to the handler) inspection services.


We primarily service the following commodities:

In addition, we have the capacity to inspect various fresh fruits and dried cut fruits as well as other less common California commodities. We can customize these inspection services to meet buyer demands on outbound products or act as an independent third party on incoming product inspections.
