ARLINGTON, Va. — The Safe Quality Food Institute, a division of the Food Marketing Institute here, is unveiling a new version of its website today at www.sqfi.com.
The website is designed to offer detailed information to suppliers, retailers and food safety certification companies working under the global food safety guidelines established by SQFI. “It offers a simple way to find information,” said Jill Hollingsworth-Reed, group vice president, food safety, SQFI.
In addition, beginning this week, SQFI auditors will be able to download from the site auditing software called Quickfire, from U.K.-based Muddy Boots Software, which will enable them to enter detailed food safety information into laptops at audit sites. Beginning in June, retailers will be able to access detailed audit information on the site with permission from audited suppliers.
The information will be stored in a database hosted by Agentrics, Chicago. Close to 3,000 manufacturers worldwide are now audited via SQFI certification bodies, said Hollingsworth-Reed.
