SQF is an international standard of food safety and quality management systems. Recognised by the Global Food Standard Initiate, the standard is an investment in benchmarking your business against the leaders of your industry.

SQF entails management commitment to not only conduct safety practices of your product or services but also to ensure quality and regulatory requirements are met. SQF can only work if the owners of the business or the core managers are committed to the program.

Some of the requirements and support programs of SQF include:

  • Quality Assurance Policy
  • Good Manufacturing Practices
  • Cleaning & Sanitation
  • Pest Control
  • Water Quality
  • Verification & Validation
  • Internal Auditing
  • Product Identification & Traceability
  • Product Recall & Withdrawal
  • Customer Complaint Management
  • Maintenance & Calibration
  • HACCP
SQF is an in-depth version of the ISO 9000 with safety and quality attributes added specifically for the food industry.
