SQFSAFE QUALITY FOOD
Safe Quality Food
SQF (Edition 8)
First developed in Australia in 1994, the SQF program has been owned and managed by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) since 2003, and was first recognized in 2004 by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)* as a standard that meets its benchmark requirements.
“Certification of a site’s SQF System by a Safe Quality Food Institute licensed certification body is not a statement of guarantee of the safety of the site’s product, or that it meets all food safety regulations at all times.”
However, it is an assurance that the site’s food safety plans have been implemented in accordance with the CODEX HACCP method as well as applicable regulatory requirements and that the System has been verified and determined effective to manage food safety.

installation of a solid HACCP plan, which allowed us to reach our goal of becoming federally licensed with CFIA.
