What is SQF Certification?

Safe Quality Food (SQF)

SQF certification originated from Australia. In 2003, it was acquired and has since been administered by Food Marketing Institute (FMI). It is the world's only certification system that integrates three major food management aspects: "food sanitation", "food safety", and "food quality". Recognized by Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) launched by food retailers in EU and supervised by neutral third-party assessment institutions, the certification truly guarantees the "From-Farm-to- Table" product safety.
