Tessemae’s Achieves SQF Level II Certification

BALTIMORE — Tessemae’s, a leader in the fresh salad dressing and condiment category, successfully achieved SQF Level 2 (Safe, Quality, Food). Heightened consumer demand for increased food safety assurances moves up the supply chain with retailers asking their suppliers to provide proof that robust food safety control programs have been effectively implemented. This is where the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Program comes in.

  • Recognized by retailers and foodservice providers around the world who are mandating a food safety management certification.
  • Fulfills the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) requirements for food manufacturing, distribution and agent/broker management certification.
  • Increases customer and consumer confidence in our Brand.

“SQF is an outward display of our commitment to quality and food safety. This certification validates our hard work and investment into our people and processes,” said Tessemae’s CEO Greg Vetter. “We believe that this is a game changer for us and something that will set us apart from our competition now and well into the future.”

“I am very proud of our operations team’s accomplishment. Their performance insures that we provide good, clean food to our customers and consumers every day,” said Scott Figura, SVP Supply Chain & Manufacturing.
