Meeting international and customer Quality Standards is our priority. Our Operations are regularly audited and certified to SQF (Safe Quality Food), Woolworths Quality Assurance, Coles Quality Assurance and ALDI Quality Assurance standards.
SQF standard is endorsed by the Safe Quality Food Institute. The SQF Code meets the needs of all suppliers in the food industry through an internationally recognised certification system, featuring an emphasis on the systematic application of HACCP for control of food quality hazards as well as food safety. The implementation of an SQF management system addresses a buyer’s food safety and quality requirements and provides the solution for businesses supplying local and global food markets.
Today’s consumers are more educated about the food they’re providing their families and requiring more information about food quality. Customers expect more from their retailers and food service providers, who in turn expect more from their suppliers.
Heightened consumer demand for increased food safety assurances moves down the chain with retailers and service providers asking suppliers to provide verifiable proof that robust food safety control systems have been effectively implemented. These systems must have been properly validated and show evidence of continuous monitoring procedures. This is where the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program comes in.
SQF is recognised by retailers and foodservice providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system. Using the SQF certification program will help reduce assessment inconsistencies and costs of multiple assessment standards. What's more, the SQF Program is recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and links primary production certification to food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management certification. Administered by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), SQF benefits from continual retailer feedback about consumer concerns. These benefits are passed on to SQF certified suppliers, keeping them a step ahead of their competitors.
The Safe Quality Food Institute Mission: To deliver consistent, globally recognised food safety and quality certification programs based on sound scientific principles, consistently applied across all industry sectors, and valued by all stakeholders.
