“This is one more step in ProAmpac’s commitment to provide food-safe packaging to our customers from multiple facilities. Certification is driven by an increasing demand from food and pet food customers responding to market pressure and regulations,” said Adam Grose, chief commercial officer.
The Safe Quality Food program is recognized by retailers, brand owners, and food service providers as one of the most rigorous and comprehensive food safety and quality standards in the world.
“To become an SQF Certified site, the Hartford facility’s cross disciplinary Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) team worked over the course of 10 months, with support from Hartford plant employees, teams in other facilities, as well as corporate functions,” said Ryan Fischer, the facility’s director of administration and team lead on the SQF certification.
The Hartford facility manufactures direct-contact flexible packaging for food, in addition to lawn and garden flexible packaging.
