Providing our customers with safe products is our paramount objective. In the past few years, we have invested heavily in food safety training and programs for all of our team members. Our food safety team conducts monthly audits of our food safety plan to assure it is effective and verifiable.
In April 2009, Hampshire Pet Products earned SQF 2000 Level 2 certification from SQF Institute, a division of the Food Marketing Institute. We were one of the first pet food manufacturers in the US to achieve this certification. We have achieved re-certification each year since – with our last review in April 2015.
The SQF (Safe Quality Food) Institute was established to administer the SQF Program, a leading, global food safety and quality certification and management system. The Program provides independent certification that a supplier's food safety and quality management system complies with international and domestic food safety regulations. This enables suppliers to assure their customers that food has been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest possible standards, at all levels of the supply chain.
• Certification at three levels and on an annual basis (the SQF 2000 certification trademark may be used after achieving and maintaining Level 3 certification).
• Guidance documents for specific food industry sectors such as dairy, fish, egg, fruit, vegetable and meat processing as well as storage, transportation and distribution.
• Third-party audit to verify the producer is adhering to the rigorous requirements of the SQF 2000 Code.
• Innovative optional modules for responsible environmental and social practices and food defense.
