About SQF:

The SQF Code is a process and product certification standard. It is a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP)-based food safety and quality management system that utilizes the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Food (NACMCF) and the CODEX Alimentarius Commission HACCP principles and guidelines, and is intended to support industry or company branded product and to offer benefits to suppliers and their customers. Certifications under the SQF Code retain a high degree of acceptance in global markets.

Edition 7 of the SQF Code was redesigned in 2012 for use by all sectors of the food industry from primary production to transport and distribution. It replaced the SQF 2000 Code edition 6 and the SQF 1000 Code edition 5.

About GFSI:

The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) is a business-driven initiative for the continuous improvement of food safety management systems to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to consumers worldwide. GFSI was launched in 2000 following a number of food safety crises when consumer confidence was at an all-time low. Its collaborative approach to food safety brings together international food safety experts from the entire food supply chain at technical working group and stakeholder meetings, conferences and regional events to share knowledge and promote a harmonized approach to managing food safety across the industry.
