After long months, you have carefully crafted a product you are certain customers will love; next is the ultimate goal: to see your product on store shelves or better yet featured on a menu.
But how do you catch the eye of a buyer? A buyer’s concern beyond taste, appeal and marketability is the safety of your product – the last thing either of you want is to be associated with a food safety recall. Make it easy for a retailer or foodservice establishment to trust your product by demonstrating you have a solid food safety plan in place.
But what food safety programs will convince the buyer you’ve got this? From handwashing to food fraud, some programs you are likely to already have but will need to evolve them as you grow and expand, other programs you may never thought of.
The SQF Fundamentals Program is specially designed for those small businesses who may not have the resources or time to leap into a GFSI benchmarked food safety program. SQFI is here to help these sites develop a robust food safety system and take their food safety management systems to the next level.

That’s why we can provide you with a variety of resources, such as guidance documents and a knowledgeable customer support team available Monday through Friday – just for you and your suppliers.
