The goal of SQF is to utilize HACCP based and scientifically proven principles to consistently apply the highest standards of food safety and quality on a global level. SQF certification, recognized by all facets of the food-processing industry, is a measurement by which producers, suppliers, retailers, and consumers can be assured of safe, quality food products.
