Looking for Food Safety Certification for your Processing Operation?

Are you an organic processor who is looking for food safety certification for your products? Are your buyers requiring a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmarked food safety certification, or requesting third party audit reports prior to approving a sale? CCOF can help.

In addition to CCOF’s food safety services for growers, we are now pleased to give our processor members access to a variety of food safety certifications at a discounted rate through an arrangement with the Food Quality Alliance (FQA). These certifications include:

  • British Retail Consortium (BRC) – GFSI-benchmarked certification. Globally recognized standard. Important for suppliers to major retailers, brand owners, and manufacturers, and is especially suited for companies exporting to Europe.
  • Safe Quality Foods Program (SQF) – GFSI-benchmarked certification. Links primary production certification to food manufacturing, distribution, and agent/broker management certification. SQF is the only scheme to integrate a quality component as well as food safety.

Additionally, CCOF members are eligible to receive discounts on a wide range of other services through FQA. The FQA client service staff can also connect you with the right specialist at each service provider so that you can get fast and accurate support and assistance. They’ll also ensure that you get the best possible price for your particular combination of services.
