As our brand continues to grow, so does the size of our facilities and the number of products we carry. An increase in size increases the overall complexity of our day-to-day operations. There are more customer requirements, which in turn increase the attention given to our internal requirements. Recently, two of our branches – Marshfield, WI and Turlock, CA – underwent their annual SQF Audits.
The SQF Institute’s mission is to “deliver consistent, globally recognized food safety and quality certification programs based on sound scientific principles, consistently applied across all industry sectors, and valued by all stakeholders”. Nelson-Jameson has sought out SQF certification as a means of enacting best practices for our warehouse operations, as well as demonstrating to our customers our dedication to quality and control as Nelson-Jameson grows to take on additional business across the country and across the globe. Currently, Nelson-Jameson is an SQF Level 2 registered company. By definition, level 2 is a certified Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points food safety plan that is benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative.
We are proud to announce that our recent SQF audits scored incredibly high, with Marshfield receiving a 99/100 and Turlock awarded an unprecedented 100/100! We are extremely grateful for everyone on our team involved in the audits for helping to achieve these scores. We are humbled in our recognition of leadership in food safety, and we’ll continue to dedicate ourselves to excellence as your single-source food, dairy, and beverage plant supplier.
