Boston plant of ePac Flexible Packaging has received the Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification becoming the first production facility in the company to pass a rigorous and credible food safety program recognized worldwide by retailers and brand owners.
The SQF certification will enable ePac Boston to meet highest food safety standards while demonstrating the company’s commitment to manufacturing excellence. Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF certification and quality standards are designed to meet industry, customer, and regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain.
‘Since we opened last year the reception to our unique value proposition has been great,’ said Tim Novak, managing partner of ePac Boston. ‘Locally based small and medium-sized brands, many focused on offering healthy food choices, now can rapidly go to market with great packaging on par with global brands. SQF certification gives our customers the confidence that their packaging supplier is every bit as concerned about food safety as they are.’
As a full-service printer/converter, ePac serves local and regional consumer packaged goods companies of all sizes, but focuses on small and medium-sized businesses producing snacks, confection, natural and organic foods, pet food, herbal and nutritional supplements. The company ships orders in 10-15 business days, and offers sustainable film options with low minimums with the ability to order to demand to reduce inventory and obsolescence.
