FLEXO Magazine : April 2013
Sunday, April 28 10 Real World Food Safety It goes a little something like this...a customer calls you up and asks for your SQF Certification number. SQF? You have no idea what he/she is talking about. Then another client calls, and another, declaring they might not be able to do business with you any more, if you are not in compliance. Suddenly you are frantically trying to figure out what this SQF business is all about, and what you need to do to comply. Once you figure out that SQF stands for Safe Quality Foods, you are left with the daunting task of implementing it at your facility. And, as luck would have it, YOU have been bestowed the title of SQF Practitioner.
