Hydrite Chemical Co. is pleased to announce the Visalia, CA and Waterloo, IA facilities have completed audits and recertification to the SQF (Safe Quality Food) Food Safety Code for Manufacturing standard, with both facilities achieving “Excellent” ratings with a score of 97 at both facilities.
The SQF Food Safety Code is a globally recognized, independent food safety management system administered by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI).
SQF is benchmarked to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). GFSI is an industry initiative established by the international trade association – the Consumer Goods Forum. This means companies that are SQF certified have some of the best food safety programs in the world and their certificates are globally accepted.
Widely considered one of the most rigorous and comprehensive food safety and quality standards in the world, SQF Certification requires producers to develop and implement a stringent food safety system based on the principles of HACCP that applies to every step of their supply chain, ensuring that products are produced, handled, processed, stored, and distributed in accordance with standards among the strictest in the industry.
The facilities will continue to be audited annually to maintain the certification.
Hydrite is proud of this achievement, and grateful for the hard-working employees behind these successful audits and certifications.
