Independent Can Operating SQF Certified Plants
Independent Can is pleased to announce that all of our facilities are SQF certified facility by The Safe Quality Food Institute.
The SQFI verifies that our systems have been properly validated and demonstrate continuous monitoring procedures. SQF is globally recognized by retailers and foodservice providers. SQF benefits extend to our customers that are pursuing their own certification.
SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacture of Food Packaging Certification incorporates all requirements, including Good Manufacturing and Distribution Practices as well as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points risk assessment and implementation. SQF Certification is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). It guarantees a higher level of trust and acceptance in our global marketplace.
In 2019, Independent Can has met its goal of SQF Certification for all facilities in which food-contact packaging is manufactured, including our Rosedale, Maryland, Vandalia, Ohio and Fort Madison, IA facility. For decades, Independent Can, through its own best practices, has met the high standards for food-contact packaging including food-safe materials, inks and coatings, as well as safe handling practices. This Certification will provide us with additional documentation of our efforts for the assurance of our customers.
Our Belcamp, Ft. Madison and Vandalia facilities have been recertified in 2021, all scoring above 95%.
