Welcome to the

Sprout Alliance for Safety and Science

The Sprout Alliance for Safety and Science (SASS) is a new alliance of sprout growers, seed suppliers, and industry-related parties from across the country that are dedicated to following rigorous food safety practices in order to deliver high quality, fresh and tasty sprouts to consumers.

Member companies of the SASS are proactively subscribing to and verifying compliance with the most rigorous standards ever developed for sprout safety.

Our mission is to:

  • Develop, implement and maintain a set of science-based Alliance operating standards that represent best current knowledge on how to grow safe sprouts.

  • Verify compliance through rigorous audits, inspections, traceability and testing methods.

  • Provide a common communication channel to get important and factual messages regarding sprouts out to the trade and consumers.

  • Invest in important scientific research, training and education.

Membership in the Sprout Alliance for Safety and Science is open to all companies in the industry who are willing to comply with the Alliance Standards Program.
