Today’s consumers are more educated about the food they’re providing their families and requiring more information about food quality. One link in the food chain does not get rattled without it affecting the next link. Customers expect more from their retailers and food service providers, who in turn expect more from their suppliers.
Responsible and certified suppliers such as Lions Gate Fisheries in the Vancouver area protect their business and customers by providing verifiable proof that they follow effective food safety control practices with continuous monitoring procedures.
This is where the Safe Quality Food (SQF) program comes in.
SQF is recognized by retailers and food service providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system. Using the SQF certification program helps make food safety assessment more consistent and less costly.
The SQF Program is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). This relationship connects all the links from producers to distribution. Administered by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), SQF benefits from continual feedback retailers provide about consumer concerns. With this valuable consumer feedback, suppliers that are certified by SQF stay ahead of their customers and on top of quality.
The Safe Quality Food Institute Mission:
To deliver consistent, globally recognized food safety and quality certification programs based on sound scientific principles, consistently applied across all industry sectors, and valued by all stakeholders.
To be the single most trusted source for global food safety and quality certification.
