)-- Quality Distribution, Inc. (QDI) is pleased to announce they have been awarded the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Code 7.2 Level 3 Certification by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI), a globally trusted, recognized, and accepted food safety and quality program. SQF is recognized by retailers, food service providers, and regulatory agencies around the world and is the only Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) recognized standard that provides a separate, unique approach that incorporates a quality certification component.
The SQF Code 7.2 Level 3 is the most stringent and highest level of certification awarded by SQFI, including both a comprehensive food safety program and a quality management system. SQF Level 3 Certification is achieved when a company demonstrates exceptional quality management and food safety practices. An independent certification body oversees the certification audit process. The third-party audit is conducted by a qualified auditor, who evaluates various aspects of the company’s food safety program and quality management system, including: personnel practices, facility maintenance and cleanliness, food defense plan, allergen program, Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) plans, employee training programs, and management commitment. With an audit score of 96 of 100, Quality Distribution, Inc. received a rating of “Excellent."
The successful attainment of the SQF Level 3 Certification reinforces QDI’s commitment to the high standards of quality service being provided to their customers since 1995. Sita Jasper, President and General Manager, credits the company’s success to its employees when she said, “I am very fortunate to have people who are loyal, dedicated, and forthright. I believe in working hard every day to give truly high-quality service and all that implies; but, I also trust and value my employees, and I feel that they respond by being as dedicated to our customers as I am.”
The SQF Certification is a journey, not a process. The QDI Team as a whole is committed to maintaining the highest food safety and quality standards in the industry as they strive to continuously improve.
