SQF Food Safety and Quality Codes
Recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF Program is designed to meet the needs of suppliers throughout the food chain through its food safety and quality codes.
Supply Chain Scope
What’s in the Codes?
More than a Global Food Safety Standard.
As a GFSI-benchmarked food safety standard, the SQF Food Safety Code provides sites with a HACCP based approach to ensure that their products meet all regulations. Aimed at organisations looking to satisfy their retailers’ and buyers’ GFSI certification requirements.
The scope of the SQF Code sets it apart from other GFSI benchmarked schemes as it covers farm to table.
The SQF Food Safety Codes provide sites with management system requirements, a HACCP based program and sector-specific Good Manufacturing Practices.
- SQF Food Safety Code for Primary Production
- SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing
- SQF Food Safety Code for Storage and Distribution
- SQF Food Safety Code for Food Packaging
- SQF Food Safety Code for Retail
The Quality code is designed to identify, control and monitor product quality related threats. The Quality code is most suited to sites who want to go beyond just food safety performance and is only available in addition to an SQF Food Safety Code.
