American Nutrition, a custom manufacturer that produces pet food and treats for branded companies and retailers, is pleased to announce it recently received a 100 percent Safe Quality Food (SQF) score on an unannounced SQF Level III audit at the Woodland, Washington, facility. Level III is the highest level of certification targeted at those looking to be assessed based on the Food Safety and Quality Management System. Only 5 percent of companies receive a 100 percent score at the level III tier.

“We are beyond humbled to receive a perfect score in the recent unannounced audit,” said Darren Stephens, SVP of technical services, American Nutrition. “At American Nutrition, we pride ourselves on having the utmost standards for cleanliness in all of our facilities by only using the highest quality ingredients to provide extruded, baked and canned pet food products that exceed customer expectations. This is something that has been a focus since the company was founded in 1972 and will never be compromised. It is a great feeling to be recognized for this—and it means we are doing something right.”

SQF is a food safety management system certification scheme that requires those involved to build a food safety management system with processes that meet all of the requirements defined here. SQF is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
