The Benefits of SQF Certification for Fulfillment and Warehousing – Food Logistics?
The Safe Quality Food Program
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program is a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognized food safety certification covering all stages of the food supply chain through industry-specific codes ranging from primary production to food manufacturing, distribution, food packaging, and retail.
What is the SQF Certification?
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program is a food safety and quality program for companies of all sizes, from large corporations to small, family-owned businesses. The certification is recognized by retailers, brand owners, and food service providers worldwide.
The program involves a set of rigorous food safety and quality codes designed to meet industry, customer, and regulatory requirements for all food supply chain sectors. This means from the farm to the retail stores. And the certification is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative.
Achieving SQF certification is a public statement of commitment to food safety. Because SQF is a set of strict “farm-to-fork” food safety quality codes and standards, achieving the certification lets food producers show their customers that their product meets the highest possible level of safety. It helps demonstrate that food safety and quality controls have been effectively implemented and validated in that facility and throughout the supply chain.
Benefits of SQF Certification
Although SQF certification is a strict process that requires organizations to adhere to stringent food safety and quality management standards, there are many advantages it comes with. Here are three essential benefits of SQF certification.
