SK Food International received SQF certification

 

SK Food has earned SQF (Safe Quality Food) certification at its processing facility, SK Food Specialty Processing, located in Moorhead, MN and granted an ‘excellent’ audit rating. Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program is a comprehensive HACCP-based food safety and quality management certification system. 

 

“We are pleased to offer our Premium Quality Ingredients under the widely-recognized SQF standard and look forward to meeting the needs of our customers, as the demand for safe, quality food continues to grow,” commented Aaron Skyberg, business development for SK Food.

 

SK Food supplies a full line of Premium Quality Ingredients including Identity Preserved: non-GMO and organic grains, seeds, soybeans, pulses, expeller oils and flours/flakes to industries including food, pet food, nutraceutical and personal care.

 

SK Food’s sister company, Hesco/Dakota Organic Products, holds “A” grades for both its South Dakota and Nebraska facilities through British Retail Consortium (BRC) audits. “SK Food’s SQF certification is a great achievement which puts us in a better position in our partnership with SK Food to market our ingredients to the highest quality standards,” notes Brad Hennrich, president of Hesco.

 

Both SQF and BRC are recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

 

Hesco/Dakota Organic Products is a South Dakota-based specialty ingredients company that provides conventional and organic wheat, durum, barley, rye, flax, ancient grains and more in whole and milled form. Hesco offers a variety of multi-grain whole bakery blends, cereal and prepared food blends as well as pet food blends.

 

SK Food and Hesco are owned by Healthy Food Ingredients, a specialty ingredient company that provides non-GMO, organic, gluten free, and identity preserved ingredients to customers in the food manufacturing and food service industries. Brad Hover, CEO of Healthy Food Ingredients adds, “increasingly, food companies are becoming more cognizant of food safety and requiring third-party certifications for the ingredients they are purchasing. Through SK Food’s and Hesco’s GFSI certifications, we strive to exceed our customers’ expectations and meet the requirements of industry standards.”
