SQF Certification for Every Link in the Food Chain
On July 1, 2012, the SQF Code, Ed. 7 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.
