Food Safety Has No Borders

With the 2017 SQF International Conference right around the corner this is a good time to reflect on the fact that food safety has no borders. In today’s world people are migrating rapidly, requiring more diverse products in their diet, and obtaining their food through a variety of different vehicles. Protecting the supply chain has never been more crucial than it is today, and with regulatory and government rules and regulations increasing, implementing the SQF Program has never been more important to your business.

The SQF program is recognized by retailers and foodservice providers around the world as a rigorous, credible food safety management system.It is the only certification system recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) that offers certificates for primary production, food manufacturing, distribution and agent management.With the release of Edition 8 we now also have a certification for retail and wholesale grocers. 这使供应商能够向其客户保证,在各级供应链均根据最高标准进行食品生产、加工、准备和处理。此外,作为食品营销协会 (FMI) 的分部,SQF 计划纳入了零售商对于消费者问题的持续反馈。这些信息被传递至 SQF 认证供应商,使他们在激烈竞争中始终领先一步。

Improved food safety standards, international trade and market integration are all required to address critical issues arising from the globalization of the food supply. As countries increase their demand for food ingredients and raw materials globally, the need to protect the consumer while promoting food safety, security, and quality throughout the supply chain is imperative.
