Maxi Canada is now SQF certified


Maxi Canada is proud to announce its recent certification by the SQF (Safe Quality Food) 2000 Program, Level 2 - Accredited HACCP Based Food Safety Plans, Meat & Poultry Category. With this recognition, Maxi Canada joins the worldwide approved food processors plants and one of a few approved poultry processing facility in Canada (chopped and formed chicken nugget category) to hold this certification.

SQF is a comprehensive food safety and quality program, which, by extension, encompasses the HACCP program. This new program was set up by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), an organization comprised of 400 members located in over 150 countries around the world that are active in food retailing, manufacturing and services. SQF was developed and implemented to ensure that every certified company produces its products in accordance with tables and critical control points. The intended outcome is standardization and attainment of product quality standards. Products produced and manufactured under the SQF 2000 Code certification retain a high degree of acceptance in global markets.

Meeting an ever-growing demand from its various clients and the global food market, Maxi Canada has set up a multidisciplinary SQF committee dedicated to implementing the SQF program. With HACCP certification since 2001, Maxi Canada is pursuing its objective to offer products manufactured in an extremely safe environment that exceeds market norms. It is with great pride that Maxi Canada stands out for its customers by implementing the SQF 2000 program. The quality and security of our products has always been our main priority.

Security over the borders

Maxi is also a certified C-TPAT member since 2005. C-TPAT is a Custom-Trade Partnership Against Terrorism program which is a voluntary supply chain security program led by U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP). This program is focused on improving the security of private companies' supply chains with respect to terrorism.
