SQF Certification for Every Link in the Food Chain
On July 1, 2013, the SQF Code, Ed. 7.1 was introduced. With this standard, SQF helps make certification more attainable for smaller companies by dividing the process into three steps: from Level 1, which incorporates fundamental food safety controls appropriate for low-risk products; all the way to Level 3, indicating a comprehensive implementation of food safety and quality management systems development.
