Hello,

Would anyone have a simple email notification letter to send out to customers letting them know we are now SQF certified?

I would email them and attach your certificate. 

 

"We are now SQF certified. Please find attached our current certificate for your records."

@FSQA88, It is a tremendous accomplishment and a testament towards the culture of your company. I do not agree, that sending your certificate is enough. Some customers do not even know what SQF stands for and how you get certified, you can simply start with "SQF stands for Safe Quality Food and is a national, third-party food safety certification and quality program with a strict set of guidelines businesses must follow. During an SQF Audit, a certified inspector conducts an extensive on-site review, typically over several days, of your facility, processes, and documentation for the last year." The audit reviews whether you are keeping the standards for a safe food environment. It also tracks whether a business is keeping proper documentation for all of its processes and products. Finally, it gives each organization an opportunity to validate that their systems are achieving their goals and producing safe foods. 

The goal of the audit is to become a SQF-Certified Site. The SQF Institute states, “Achieving this certification is not only a testament to your hard work, it is also a credible demonstration of your commitment to food safety.” 

There are templates on the internet that will guide you, but you and your company should have some sort of press release. 

Congrats

Notification can be as basic or in-depth as you like.  This is a good time to involve senior management, sales, basically anyone involved with company PR, and decide how much info you want to include about your company, its products, or your processes.
