Enhancing Food Safety with Rapid Roller Doors: A Guide to SQF Compliance


In today's food industry, ensuring the safety and quality of products is a top priority. One key framework that facilitates this goal is the Safe Quality Foods (SQF) program, recognised by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

This program offers a wide array of food safety and quality guidelines, specifically designed to cater to the demands of suppliers at every stage of the food supply chain, from cultivation, all the way through to customer consumption.

Safe Quality Foods SQF Audits

An SQF audit is a comprehensive assessment conducted to evaluate a company's food safety and quality management systems against the Safe Quality Foods standard. This rigorous evaluation encompasses various aspects of food production, processing, storage, and distribution, ensuring compliance with internationally recognised food safety standards.

During an SQF audit, auditors thoroughly examine critical areas of the operation, including facility cleanliness, hazard analysis, supplier management, and documentation practices. Here are some key components typically included in an SQF audit:

🏭 Facility and Equipment Inspection: Evaluation of facilities, equipment, and infrastructure to ensure compliance with hygiene and safety standards, including assessment of the facility's measures for preventing pests and rodents from entering food production areas.

⚠️ Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP) Evaluation: Review of HACCP plans to identify and control food safety hazards specific to the company's operations.

🧼 Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) Assessment: Verification of adherence to GMPs, including cleanliness, sanitation, and employee hygiene practices.

🛒 Supplier Management Verification: Evaluation of supplier management procedures to ensure the safety and quality of raw materials and ingredients.

🔄 Traceability and Recall Procedures Review: Examination of traceability systems and recall procedures to track products throughout the supply chain and initiate recalls if necessary.

📝 Documentation and Record-Keeping Examination: Assessment of documentation and record-keeping practices to ensure accurate and up-to-date records of food production and safety measures.



Combatting Pest Entry Points: How Rapid Roller Doors Ensure SQF Compliance and Facility Integrity

When undergoing an SQF Audit, businesses must ensure that their facilities comply with food safety standards, which includes implementing effective pest and rodent control measures.
