If you have a contract with a different company to produce products with your companies branded label on it are they required to be SQF certified? We feel that regardless of the code they should but are facing pushback. We have the following situations:
- Plant A takes a bulk form of our product and packages it into our retail containers that are the same products we package at both our facilities that are being required by a customer to be SQF certified.
- Plant B makes completely different products from our two facilities but have our label on them.
- Plant C uses their own ingredients but packages using our label and pays us some fee for using our brand name.
Sorry if this is a silly question or not clear.
Not a silly question at all.
There is no requirement that your contract manufacturer be SQF certified. You may of course make that a requirement as part of your contact agreement with them.
