Hi, we are vetting an frozen storage facility and I have some confusion. They are SQF certified in Ohio, with a manufacturing and food storage certificate. Their corporate office is also in Ohio. The address of the facility we are trying to use is in KY. The certificate they provided to me only has the corporate office address on it. While trying to vet them for one of our customers, I was told that the addresses didn't match. I already knew that going in but the the facility's food safety rep assured me that this is how it is done, despite me asking him to please connect the address dots on paper. I have never dealt with a business that has multiple facilities like this, so I am asking here. Is there a certificate for each address? Is there something in SQF audit reports that connects all the locations? How do I provide our customer what they are asking for? Thank you in advance for any help or advice! ~Polly

SQF certification is location specific. If it was initially done as a multi-unit certification it is possible the address might not match up. However, the primary certificate should have the location address on it... soneone is pulling your leg with the - it is how this is done.

Thank you. That's what I thought but we are a small company and I am not as experienced. The place we are trying to store our product in even has a different business name. I cannot find this particular facility on the SQFI directory at all.

Can anyone tell me the name of a multi site company so I can look up the certificate and see it so I know what I am looking for/at. 

Would I be able to reach out to their certifying body and ask them for clarification? 

I want to make sure I understand everything completely before I claim they are pulling something. 

I have asked them to send me some sort of documentation that links the addresses and business names, but they haven't been forthcoming with help.

If they are certified you should be able to find them here

https://www.sqfi.com...site-directory/

 

 

If not, by all means call SQFI directly!

Those are all the hits I got from SQFI for SQF certified food storage facilities in Kentucky
