Ameri-Pac, Inc. is pleased to announce their latest achievement in food safety. As a manufacturer of animal health and nutrition specialty products, Ameri-Pac recently earned Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 2 Certification. This certification is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).  

This initiative underscores the company’s commitment to helping its customers protect their brand reputations by providing a product that meets the strictest standards for food safety.

“At Ameri-Pac we understand the critical importance of food safety. Our clients include global, national and regional brands who rely on us as an ingredient supplier, and we work to protect their goals of delivering safe, quality products. That is why we have taken this step to obtain third-party verification of our processes,” said Bob Colescott, president of Ameri-Pac, Inc. “I’m proud of our entire staff for their role in the great accomplishment.”

To achieve SQF certification, suppliers complete extensive training; develop, document, and implement food safety and quality plans; and undergo a third-party audit. The audit process evaluates a company’s food safety and quality programs that include cleaning and sanitation, personnel practices, and plant maintenance.

SQF certification provides assurance that the products sold by certified manufactures have passed rigorous international standards for food safety and quality. Products produced and manufactured under the SQF certification retain a high degree of acceptance in global markets by retailers, consumer brands, and foodservice providers.
