We are registered as meeting the requirements of the SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing, Edition 8. This certification is internationally recognized by retailers, foodservice providers and regulatory agencies that require HACCP safety and quality systems from their suppliers.
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program, managed by the Safe Quality Food Institute is recognized by businesses in the food industry around the world as a rigorous, credible food safety and quality program.
