We are pleased to announce that GMSP recently renewed our Safety Quality Food (SQF) Certification as part of ongoing committment to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). 

Your question may be: How do these certifications benefit you, our valued customer?

Safe Quality Food 

SQF Certification means that GMSP is ranked in the top 25 percent of all audited facilities and exceeded SQF’s stringent inspection standards. SQF uses these standards internationally, and they are based on a combination of FDA regulations, ISO standards, HACCP guidelines, as well as guidelines established by other regulatory groups. For you, it means that GMSP’s internal processes and procedures passed some of the toughest testing for direct and indirect food contact products and thus ensuring the quality and integrity of the products we supply to you.
