Hello all,


Happy New Year!

I hope everyone is keeping well and staying safe.



We are a small-medium bakery facility and we are SQF Certified for Bakery 13.


 Do we have to get a separate Storage and Distribution Certificate for the new location or can we just add it in as multi-site.



We have recently purchased another location for storage and distribution.

Can anybody share next steps and any insight on how to approach this addition?

The management want to move fast and I am afraid they are going to move before we have everything in place and need to prioritize essential and most important.


Any guidance would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you in advance.

Can not get it certfified as a multi-site, it is not the same tupe of operation.


I see two choices, 1. if you must get it certified you do so under the separate certification for storage an distribution.


Or 2. Just have an FSMS for this facility,
