Edlyn Foods recently underwent its first Safe Quality Food (SQF) audit, and is proud to announce that it has obtained certification as an SQF manufacturing facility.
The SQF program is a food safety certification, recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GSFI). It covers all stages of the food supply chain with industry-specific codes, ranging from primary production through to food manufacturing, distribution, packaging and retail.
As part of Edlyn’s continuous improvement plan, the Quality team had been preparing for this audit for 18 months. SQF is a rigorous and credible food safety and quality program that is widely recognised and accepted globally in the food industry.
The certification is carried out by assessing the implementation of a site’s food safety and quality plans.
This certification will allow Edlyn to cater to the increasing quality expectations of Australia’s largest customer groups. It will also result in greater recognition of our production facility and internal quality systems.
Edlyn is extremely proud of this achievement and the hard work undertaken by the quality team to prepare for, and ultimately achieve, this certification.
