General Converting, a premier folding carton manufacturer located in Bolingbrook, IL, is pleased to announce its recertification to SQF Level 3. Safe Quality Foods Program (SQF) is a comprehensive implementation of safety and quality management systems, including HACCP and ISO based food safety programs. At the conclusion of the two day audit by Intertek, GCI received an “Excellent” score of 97%, which reflects the commitment and dedication of GCI employees.

A few comments that the auditor expressed across the two days that we believe are worth repeating:

  • “The people that I have interviewed here have been very easy to work, very open and honest. They     are willing to answer questions without hesitation.”
  • “This is a great plant that is very clean.”
  • “This is a really great facility with really great people. SQF is recognized by retailers and food service providers around the world."

The SQF Code Level 2 and 3 requirements are benchmarked food safety standards to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). GFSI is a collaboration of the world’s leading food safety experts representing a broad range of participants in the supply chain, from primary producer to retailer.
