Check mark in boxThose outside the food industry may only think about food safety when an outbreak of food borne illness makes the news, however, the implementation and maintenance of a food safety and quality program is critical to ensuring a safe supply chain.

As part of its continued commitment to providing quality texturizers and stabilizers, TIC Gums recently passed its annual Safe Quality Food (SQF) audit with an “Excellent” rating. The company was audited against the most stringent level of the SQF Code, known as Level 3.

This is the sixth consecutive year TIC Gums received the highest possible rating of “Excellent.” 

“Achieving and maintaining a Level 3 certification requires commitment from all employees, not just those in the quality department, and is a reflection of TIC Gums’ strong quality culture,” observed Bradd Eldridge, Director, Quality & Regulatory Affairs.

The SQF audit focuses on food safety, security and quality, and is accredited as one of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) audit schemes now being expected by major food manufacturers and retailers.

For our customers, our successful SQF audit may meet their requirement for onsite audits, eliminating their need to audit our facilities individually or making it possible to extend the time between audits.
