SQF 2000 (Safe Quality Food)


The SQF Program is a leading food safety and quality certification system that is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). The program was designed to meet the needs of suppliers and buyers, to ensure their compliance with food safety regulations in both domestic and global markets at all stages of the supply chain.

The SQF Program is comprised of two codes: SQF 1000 and SQF 2000. Both codes were designed recognizing that risk management can be applied to all products, but that all processes do not lend themselves to a complete HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) system. Therefore, SQF 1000 is based on the principles of HACCP, whereas SQF 2000 is a complete HACCP system.


SQF is recognized by retailers and food service providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system. Using the SQF certification program will help reduce assessment inconsistencies and costs of multiple assessment standards. The SQF Program is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and links primary production certification to food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management certification.

During the development of SQF, hundreds of food standards were reviewed worldwide. SQF is aligned with HACCP , Codex Alimentarius, ISO 9001 and NACMCF (National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria of Foods). All of the aforementioned standards are proven methods used by the food industry to reduce the incidence of unsafe food reaching consumers in the marketplace.


Being compliant with SQF demonstrates the suppliers commitment to:


1.Produce safe and quality food

2.Comply with the requirements of the SQF code

3.Comply with applicable food legislation


This code is for manufacturers, distributors and brokers of food and beverage products, and can be used by all sectors of the food industry.
