Vets Plus Inc. has received SQF (Safe Quality Food) code 7.2 Level 3 certification for manufacturing dietary supplements after an audit in September.
This is the highest level of certification standards set by Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) and is recognized by food service providers and regulatory agencies around the world that require food safety and quality management systems by their suppliers.
“We have worked hard to implement the SQF standard protocol throughout our manufacturing processes,” said Dr. Anita Sinha, director of quality management at Vets Plus. “To have achieved this certification is a great honor and indicator of the quality of products we are making here.”
The SQF standards are based on government and industry food safety requirements with specialized guidance within specific categories. Companies must demonstrate their ongoing dedication to food safety and quality, which is validated during an annual recertification audit.
“The audit process and maintenance of SQF certification at this level is a demonstration to our partners of our commitment to safe, quality animal health products,” said Dr. Sinha. “We chose to pursue this certification because we are dedicated to safe manufacturing processes to ensure the highest quality products.”
