General / December 21, 2021
Batavia, IL. – December 21, 2021 – Eagle Flexible Packaging, Inc. (Eagle) is pleased to announce that it has achieved a score of 100 out of 100 on its annual SQF Food Safety (SQF) and Quality Management System (QMS) audits (formerly referred to as SQF Level 3) that were completed on Thursday, December 16, 2021.
“This is our 5th year being audited under both the SQF and QMS code requirements and we keep getting incrementally better each year”, said CEO Ed Walenga. “The fact that there were zero adverse findings during the audits reflects the dedication, engagement, care and teamwork of everyone at Eagle to meet and exceed food safety and quality management code requirements as well as the high expectations of our trusting customers”.
The SQF certification program was developed by the SQFI (Safe Quality Food Institute) to establish standards in food and food contact packaging quality control during processing. The certification has rigorous requirements for safe food handling and packaging. Such efforts (and accountability) benefit everyone – consumers and manufacturers alike. By identifying food safety and quality threats, and then addressing and correcting them, finished products are kept both safe and in optimal condition. Food should be handled properly so that it doesn’t cause sickness, but it’s also important that it makes it safely to the consumer so that it can be enjoyed the way the manufacturer intended. Our efforts and SQF and QMS certifications target both.
