Aurochemicals (Washingtonville, New York) has received a Safe Quality Food (SQF) Level 2 certification from the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) for the second consecutive year.
The Level 2 certification is a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety plan that is benchmarked by GFSI.
All companies that wish to become SQF certified must go through a list of steps including registering the company with the SQF assessment database, designating an employee as an SQF practitioner, choosing a level of certification, and eventually passing an audit, performed by a licensed SQF certification body, which includes reviews of documents and an assessment of the company's facility.
“It is an honor to receive an 'A' rating from the Safe Quality Food Institute for our facility,” said Sagar Lachmansing, vice president of quality, scientific and regulatory affairs and SQF practitioner at Aurochemicals. “Our team at Aurochemicals continually strives for the highest level of food safety and quality for our products, and this certification recognizes our attention to detail for our processes and production.”
“At Aurochemicals, we are fully devoted to surpassing our customer’s needs,” said Deo Persaud, vice president and CEO. “Our second SQF certification stands as a testament to our team’s dedication to producing the highest quality flavor and fragrance ingredients.”
