SQF Fundamentals Program
A solution for small to medium-sized sites that do not have a robust food safety management program in place or want to take their existing program to the next level. Built as a step-wise approach, the SQF Fundamentals audit is designed to help integrate robust food safety standards into a site's existing practices while creating a pathway to achieve globally accepted GFSI certification.
The SQF Food Safety Code provides sites with a HACCP-based approach to ensure their products meet industry and regulatory requirements. The Food Safety Code standard is a globally accepted, GFSI-benchmarked certification audit. Businesses looking to satisfy their customers’ GFSI certification needs, should learn more about the SQF Food Safety Code.
SQF Quality Code Program
The SQF Quality Code is for those sites that desire to go above and beyond food safety. The Quality Code is designed to monitor and control food quality-related threats and is most suited for sites that have implemented a successful, robust SQF Food Safety Plan. Additionally, the SQF Quality Code can be implemented in tandem with the SQF Food Safety Code audit.
The SQF scheme is a rigorous and credible food safety and quality program that is recognized by retailers, brand owners, and food service providers worldwide. A successful SQF audit is considered the "gold standard" of food safety certifications.
As a globally recognized standard by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF family of food safety and quality codes are designed to meet industry, customer, and regulatory requirements for all sectors across the food supply chain.
SQF certifications showcase a site’s commitment to a food safety culture and management system and are designed to remain competitive and go above and beyond industry and regulatory requirements. An SQF-certified site promoting its SQF certification is known to have a safer and higher quality product.
