What is the SQF Program?
ONE WORLD. ONE STANDARD.
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program is a rigorous and credible food safety and quality program that is recognized by retailers, brand owners, and food service providers world-wide. Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF family of food safety and quality codes are designed to meet industry, customer, and regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain – from the farm all the way to the retail stores.
The SQF Code meets the needs of all suppliers in the food industry through an internationally recognized certification system with an emphasis on the systematic application of HACCP for control of food-quality hazards and food safety.DOWNLOAD MOST RECENT EDITION OF SQF CODE
