Vintners Logistics Receives a High Score of 990 on Facility Inspection from AIB International

Vintners Logistics is a Pacific Northwest company that warehouses and transports food-and-beverage products for wineries and food processing companies.

In November, the American Institute of Baking International (AIB International) audited Vintners Logistics’ food safety and sanitation practices and inspected their facility. Vintners Logistics received perfect scores in the categories of Maintenance for Food Safety, Cleaning Practices, and Integrated Pest Management; and very high scores in the categories of Operational Methods, Personnel Practices, and Adequacy of Prerequisite and Food Safety Programs.

The AIB inspector stated that a score of 990/1,000 was the highest he had ever given an operating distribution center.

After receiving the unprecedented score, Robert Thompson, Vintners Logistics’ owner shared, “I am proud of my team and the score that we earned because it validates the passion we have to provide safe, clean warehouses and fleet for our customers.”

Vintners Logistics’ 160,000 square foot facility is constructed with phenol-free products and was specifically built to protect and maintain temperature and humidity. These environmental measurements are tracked and logged hourly, 24 times a day, 365 days a year. Regular customer inspections include the use of “atmosphere traps” to test for mold spores in parts-per-trillion. Vintners Logistics’ facility provides a consistently “clean” location for housing customer products.

The facility is registered and regularly inspected by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and Washington State Department of Agriculture (WSDA). The company’s warehouse and corporate headquarters are located in Kennewick, WA.

Vintners Logistics was founded by Robert Thompson in 2007 to provide food-grade, third-party warehousing and transportation services. Vintners Logistics consolidates food and beverage products and packaging materials for shipment in the Pacific Northwest, Northern California and other U.S. destinations.

A Happier Christmas with Toys for Tots

Vintners Logistics was proud to help make a happier Christmas for area children and families through our participation in the U.S. Marine Corps. Toys for Tots program. We donated the use of a 53’ trailer that was filled with toys, labor to unload and warehouse over 1600+ bicycles and two more trailers to deliver the bikes to the fair grounds where an awesome group of volunteers donated their time to assemble the bikes to be distributed to underprivileged children.
