GFSI: Safe Food for Consumers Everywhere
SQF: Protecting Consumers, Protecting Brands
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) third-party certification program is managed by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) whose vision is to be the single most trusted source for global food safety and quality certification. The SQF Program is a complete food safety and quality management system and is the only GFSI globally recognized standard based in the United States. An increasing number of U.S. and international food retailers are expressing a preference for SQF certified suppliers and certificates have now been issued in more than 30 countries.
Why are more suppliers and their buyers requesting SQF? SQF independent certification provides assurance that food has been produced, processed, and handled according to the highest possible standards and that it has met domestic and international food safety regulations. This leading risk analysis and prevention-based standard also serves the needs of all levels of the food supply chain and offers a host of unique features and benefits.
