Anji, China, Oct 23th, 2015 -- Skyherb, a dedicated botanical ingredient manufacturer, announced today it has been awarded the Safe Quality Foods (SQF) – Level 3 Comprehensive Food Safety and Quality Management System Certification by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI), a globally trusted and accepted food safety and quality program.
"Skyherb has always been dedicated to being China’s industry leader in quality and food safety, and the achievement of this certification affirms our commitment to creating and maintaining the industry's highest food safety standards," said Cloudeast Shao, President of Skyherb Ingredients. "Furthermore, while we are thrilled to be one of the very few companies to pass one of the most rigorous global certifications available, it comes with the realization that everyone at Skyherb has woven these standards into our culture and how we fulfill our promise to take better care of customers than anyone else"
SQF certification is achieved when a company demonstrates exceptional quality control and food safety practices. A qualified inspector conducts a third-party audit to evaluate aspects of a company's food safety program, including personnel practices, food safety programs and plant maintenance and cleanliness. The certification also provides validation to many national and international retailers and food service providers by demonstrating that a company follows food safety programs.
The SQF Program was launched in 1994 and is administered by the SQF Institute, a division of the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). SQF is one of the certification systems recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), which links primary production certification to food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management certification
