SQF Benefits to Buyers
Requiring SQF certification from suppliers helps to protect buyer’s brands by focusing proactively on prevention strategies. SQF certification meets regulatory food safety requirements, allowing buyers to demonstrate due diligence in food safety matters by requiring their suppliers to implement just one program and one standard. Because SQF is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, it is trusted by buyers around the world. The SQF Program also makes it easier for buyers to identify qualified suppliers by providing online access to a list of SQF suppliers, along with their certification status and audit results. The Safe Quality Foundation’s Compliance and Integrity Program (CIP) measures the quality and integrity of SQF certificates, audits, SQF professionals, and licensed certification bodies. The SQF CIP, helps to ensure the consistent execution of the SQF Program to meet stakeholder expectations. The CIP is used to identify areas for improvement to strengthen the SQF Program. There are two areas of focus for the CIP: Monitoring Activities and Stakeholder Feedback.
