SQF is recognized by retailers and foodservice providers around the world who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system. Using the SQF certification program will help reduce assessment inconsistencies and costs of multiple assessment standards. The SQF Program is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and links primary production certification to food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management certification. Administered by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), SQF benefits from continual retailer feedback about consumer concerns. These benefits are passed on to SQF certified suppliers, keeping them a step ahead of their competitors. SQF is the only scheme to integrate a quality component as well as food safety.


At Sentry Seasonings Inc. we want to be recognized by our customers as their "Reliable Partner in Innovation" and their preferred supplier delivering safe products that meet SQF Code, Edition 7.2 System Requirements. In order to achieve this certification, we have implemented comprehensive food safety fundamentals. These include:

  • Personnel Practices
  • Employee Training
  • Calibration of Equipments
  • Pest Control
  • Cleaning and Sanitation
  • Premises and Equipment Maintenance
  • Water and Air Supply
  • Control of Physical Contaminants
  • Storage
  • Waste Management and Disposal
  • Allergen Control
  • Approved Supplier Program

Our focus is to create a culture that fosters customer satisfaction, continuous improvement and employee development.


The food safety team is equipped with the resources (i.e., equipment, infrastructure and development of people) necessary to effectively implement food safety and food security programs that meet the global food safety standards which reinforce our overall commitment to produce safe quality products that meet our customers need.


The senior management team reviews the suitability, adequacy and effectiveness of the Food Safety Management System. The management team assess opportunities for improvement and the need for changes to the food safety management system, including the food safety policy.


A certificate of analysis is required from our suppliers for each raw material. In addition to the COA, in-house tests are performed on incoming raw materials to confirm compliance. Tests are also performed routinely by an outside lab on randomly selected raw materials and finished products to further verify compliance. All finished products are tested for compliance to specifications, and a COA is also available for each product we make.


Raw materials are approved by the Research and Development team before use. The Quality team evaluates the food safety programs of our vendors to ensure our raw material supply chain is secure. Random supplier/vendor audits are conducted to further validate their food safety programs.


Traceability of raw materials from the supplier into our facility is maintained throughout production operations by lot control and First-in, First-out (FIFO) procedures. Retention samples of raw materials and finished products are retained for one year beyond the product shelf-life as a part of our record retention policy.


All food safety updates and trainings are conducted on an annual basis. Employees are trained in good manufacturing practices, allergen awareness, food safety, sanitation and housekeeping. Meetings are held to review operational results, safety concerns and any GMP issues.


All raw materials and finished product deliveries are inspected for sanitary conditions, temperature conformity, documentation and the security of the delivery.


We employ a certified pest control company to manage and monitor our pest control program.


Our food safety processes are monitored and verified by third party audits conducted annually by the SQF, aimed at successfully complying with all industry food safety standards. Customers who wish to inspect our safety procedures and guidelines are also welcome to do so. Our safety processes are further focused at reducing non-quality cost, increasing customer retention though our total quality management initiatives.


It is our goal to continuously improve Food Safety Systems through trend analysis of customer complaints and providing timely resolution to ensure confidence in the delivery of safe food to customers.
