Atlapac Corporation has successfully achieved SQF (Safe Quality Food) Level 2 Certification at its Columbus, Ohio facility.
SQF is a HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points) based food safety program recognized by GFSI (Global Food Safety Initiative). SQF certification is a food safety standard that is comparable to BRC (British Retail Consortium) and FSSC 22000 (Food Safety System Certification). The SQF certification program ensures that products have passed thorough international standards for food quality and safety. SQF is recognized by retailers and foodservice providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system.
“Atlapac’s SQF Level 2 Certification further demonstrates our commitment to exceed the existing basic food safety and quality expectations,” says Paul Unrue, Atlapac Corporation president. “Each step throughout our various processes engages our employees in the food safety culture. This certification reinforces to our customers that we are committed to being a reliable packaging supplier within our various supply chains.”
Atlapac has 30 quality and food safety programs in place, including: document control, management audits/monthly audits, good manufacturing practices, pest control, chemical control, storage and handling, training, quality control, customer quality/complaint management, traceability, hold and release protocol, glass and brittle plastics, sanitation and maintenance.
