USA, Chicago, IL. Provisur Technologies, a global leader in food processing technologies today announced the achievement of SQF Certification by the Safe Food Institute for the safe manufacture of food-grade paper products converted within the company’s 22,000-ft.2 facility in Tinley Park, IL.
The globally-recognized certification covers Provisur’s Formax brand papers for direct and indirect product contact, as well as all private label food wrapping and packaging products. Applications for single sheet and roll stock food-grade papers vary widely and include papers for burger patties, cheese interleaving, sliced meat interleaving, layout bacon, cookies and more.
The SQF audit of the Provisur facility and procedures was conducted over a 6-month period and resulted in a 97-point score out of a possible 100 points. While only 70 points are required for Certification, the score of 97 places the company’s facility, employee team and procedural discipline among the world’s elite food-grade paper manufacturers. Among the many processes and documented procedures measured by the audit are raw material management, safety planning, employee training, operational procedures, and traceability.
To ensure that timely and accurate information is available to Provisur customers, as well as customers of theirs, the company has dedicated a team member solely to the job of updating quality records and SQF-related documentation. Since 2013, the company has relied on a certification from the AIB International Consolidated Standards for Food-Contact Packaging to help assure customers of high safety standards.
