Why is SQF Certification Important?

Since 2016, Versa Pak has been Safe Quality Food (SQF) certified as a manufacturer of food packaging.

According to the SQF code, a company that’s certified:

  • Produces safe, quality food or food packaging
  • Complies with all regulations
  • Complies with applicable legislation.

When you purchase products from Versa Pak, you can be assured that they’ve been produced to the highest levels of safety and quality.

“It allows for others to have an understanding of the facility we have here without visiting it,” said president Michael Brunswick. “It saves you time and money – all we have to do is send our SQF audit report and you can get a good idea as to whether or not we’re a facility you can trust to make your poly.”
