Safe Quality Food (SQF) is the Global Food Safety Initiative that Flavor Source has chosen as the means to ensure food safety throughout the company. This system is a full blown comprehensive management system which takes the SQF code and determines policies, procedures and work instructions in order to achieve food safety objectives. Aspects of the program include our HACCP plan and testing requirements to make sure that your products are produced in a clean environment and that we meet all regulations and customer requirements.
 
SQF Certification
Each year we go through an extensive 3rd party audit, which test the completeness and capabilities of our management system. This audit gives us global recognition of the food safety system we utilize. The safety and quality of our products are truly the first concern which gives our customers the assurance they need in today's regulatory environment.
 
Quality 
We look forward to each blending challenge with the goal of maintaining consistent quality and outstanding value.  Thorough testing is required to develop the precise blend for each customer. Using the finest ingredients, we process orders in our factory, stopping at critical intervals to check for consistency of mixture through various methods in our test kitchen.
