SQF Certified Facilities
We support the Global Food Safety Initiative through our SQF certification.
In order to meet and exceed expectations, the Quality Control/Food
Safety team of experienced scientists and specialists are trained in
current food safety requirements and trends. To assure all aspects of
our operations are strictly adhering to current food safety regulations
and standards, they develop, implement and monitor strict internal
quality and food safety controls.
The Global Food Safety Initiative is recognized worldwide as a set of standards against which a food production facility’s procedures and food quality & safety systems are benchmarked. This certification verifies our diligence to food safety.
The Food Safety Modernization Act is the most sweeping revolution to overtake the U.S. Food Industry in nearly 80 years. Briess recognized the importance of this legislation, and initiated a review of all food safety and quality systems ahead of our mandatory compliance date. Briess went beyond Preventive Controls Qualified Individual requirements, having all Briess Quality and Plant Production managers participate in formal PCQI training to better understand the requirements, and making Briess programs and culture fully FSMA compliant.
Organic Certified since 1990
GRAS statements are available on our products, emphasizing our commitment to FDA standards.
Briess product lines meet the standards set forth by The Association of American Feed Control Officials, expanding their relevance beyond human food and beverage applications to usage in pet and livestock foods.
The Briess facility Food Defense Team includes interdisciplinary members representing internal Production, Logistics, Quality and Safety Departments. Led by AIB-trained Food Defense Coordinators, Briess teams meet regularly to ensure compliance with the Bioterrorism Act of 2002.
Briess Food Safety Plans were developed as the foundation of our FSMA adherence. The plans were developed by a cross-functional team using HAACP principles. Formally AIB trained, this team routinely meets to adapt plans that are reflective of our continuous food safety improvements.
State, federal and third-party audits
At Briess, we recognize the importance of frequent federal and state plant audits, and customer-driven and independent third-party inspections, as tools for regulatory compliance.
