Food Grade Warehouse Standards
Our facility is strictly maintained and monitored according to the highest safety, security, and cleanliness standards. To become licensed as a food storage warehouse, a facility has to pass a rigorous inspection and prove that it complies with a stringent set of FDA regulations. Our Pacific Northwest and Midwest facilities meet strict good manufacturing practices (GMP) guidelines and are registered with the FDA.
This allows us to handle non-perishable goods (items that can be kept at room temperature, like dry goods, soda, cereal, canned food, energy drinks, and more).
At Bridgetown, we can store a wide variety of dry food products, including:
- Sauces, dressings, bases, condiments, dips, beverage mixers, oils, vinegar, ketchup, bbq sauce, mustard, ranch, mayonnaise, gravy mixes, and more.
- Canned foods such as soups, beans, fruit, meats, pickles, and more.
- Dog and cat food, pet treats, and animal food for cows, equine, poultry, rabbit, goat, cattle, and small animals.
- Bulk pasta, grains, beans, etc.
- Raw ingredients and pantry supply like sugar, syrups, flours, seasonings, spices, starches, preservatives, artificial sweeteners, natural colors, fibers, proteins, cocoa, flavorings, shortenings, polyols, minerals, corn starch, enzymes, emulsifiers, and more.

- Vitamins, dietary, and nutritional supplements.
