Medford, January 28, 2011 - Hoff's Bakery has been named a Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000 Level 3 Certified Supplier by the SQF Institute, a division of the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). SQF Level 3 is the most rigorous certification awarded by the FMI. To receive this level of certification Hoff's Bakery must meet a number of strict SQF safety, quality and sanitation requirements, develop and maintain the highest level of sustainable Good Manufacturing Processes (GMPs), develop and follow a Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HAACP) program to ensure food safety, develop a food-quality risk assessment and quality-control plan, plus provide continuous training for all its employees on SQF programs and verify they are following them.
Hoff's Bakery is one of the elite bakeries to be Level 3 certified in the United States
SQF certification is recognized worldwide. It tells Hoff's Bakery customers they are doing business with a company that adheres to the strictest food safety, quality and sanitation standards. It gives consumers a sense of confidence to know that they are buying products from a company recognized for producing safe, quality food. Receiving this certification gives external validation to the internal commitment to safety and quality to which Hoff's Bakery has always adhered.
Being SQF-certified builds confidence between Hoff's Bakery, its retail and foodservice partners and their customers. Plus, having a recognized single-audit system in place eliminates the need for duplicate, costly audits from other sources. The SQF program has been implemented by more than 5,000 companies operating in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, Europe, South America and, of course, here in the United States. In addition, the SQF 2000 certification meets the safety standard of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
