I work in a juice manufacturing company. We receive the fruit, we process it, we bottle and we ship it. We are SQF level 2 certified. Now we are considering having a co-packer for an specific type of juice but that potential co-packer is not a juice manufacturer yet. They have farms and they pack fruit. They are Primus GFS certified for that process and they have juice manufacturing equipment but they are not using it. My question is that if they are Primus GFS certified from the farm until the cut fruit could they be SQF certified from that step until the last step of the juice processing part (shipping) or the scope for SQF should be from receiving the fruit until shipping the juice even though there would be some overlapping ?


Thank you for your help on that

From receiving and the farm operation then becomes a supplier to the SQF facility.
