General Plastic Extrusions, Inc has announced that they are in the process of seeking SQF Institute Certification. SQF Institute stands for Safe Quality Foods Institute and is recognized around the world as a credible food safety management system. General Plastic is a packaging manufacturer and SQF Certification will make it easier for their food processing customers and prospects to work with them. General Plastic has been ISO Certified for over 10 years and is looking to improve their quality standards even further by going through the more rigorous SQF system.
General Plastic has completed its HACCP portion of the SQF requirements and last month sent Production Manager, Rich Olson and Quality Manager, Gavin Wiersma through SQF practitioner training in Madison, Wisconsin.
Gavin Wiersma, Quality Manager at General Plastic commented, “We have had several of our food customers’ audit us and they have been pleased with the results of their audits. The addition of SQF Certification will streamline future vendor qualification and audits.”
General Plastic plans to complete the SQF Certification by year’s end.
