The company I work for produces mainly food contact packaging. We have several plants but the R&D group is located at the plant where I work. The R&D group works with several plants some of which have SQF Level 2 certification
The plant where I work has finished the SQF audits and is wanting for certification. We did not include the R&D group or the facilities that are solely used by them in the scope of our audit.
The R&D manager asked me if it would make sense to obtain SQF Level 1 certification for the R&D group.
Any thoughts on this? Has anyone obtained separate SQF certification in packaging for their R&D group?
