Relevant for small to large food suppliers looking to satisfy GFSI certification requirements of retailers and buyers.
SQF Food Safety Codes are globally accepted standards developed for: Manufacturers of food, animal products, dietary supplements, pet food, animal feed, and food packaging.
There are also SQF Food Safety Codes for Storage & Distribution, Aquaculture, Primary Plant Production, and Primary Animal Production.
Why get an SQF Certification?
The demand for SQF certification has increased exponentially as retailers, processors, distributors and producers have seen how certification can significantly improve their food safety system. As a well-known Certification Body for SQF, ASI Food Safety performs audits all over the United States, Canada and Mexico.
Three levels of SQF Certification
- Food Safety Fundamentals - Organizations who don’t have a robust food safety management program in place can look to the SQF Fundamentals Program to learn how to integrate robust food safety standards into existing practices. This also creates a pathway to later achieve a globally accepted GFSI certification.
- GFSI Benchmarked Food Safety Plan - The SQF Food Safety Codes provides sites with a HACCP based approach to ensure that their products meet almost all regulations.
- Comprehensive Food Safety & Food Quality Program - Designed to monitor and control food quality related threats. This program is most suited for sites who have already implemented a successful, robust SQF Food Safety Plan.
