Who recognizes SQF？
The SQF Program is owned by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). At the request of its retail members FMI acquired SQF so they could utilize one program that met their requirements and at the same time provided efficiencies for suppliers. SQF is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative as conforming to the highest international standards and utilizes protocols recognized by the International Accreditation Forum.
The SQF program has been implemented by over 4000 companies operating in Asia-Pacific, the Middle East, United States, Europe and South America. Registered SQF Experts and SQF Auditors are implementing and auditing SQF systems around the world.
SQF2000 标准由美国零售业公会（FMI）这一机构授权颁发,并获得美国国家认可委员会(RAB)的认可。SQF2000 是目前世界上唯一将安全、质量体系完全融合的标准，同时也最大程度的减少了企业在质量安全体系上的多重认证成本。该标准具有很强的综合性和可操作性。CIES 全球食品安全论坛确立SQF2000为全球快速消费品零售商安全标准，SQF计划已经被亚太，中东，美国，欧洲和南美超过4000的公司企业所采用。包括美国Wal-Mart在内的国际采购、零售集团均采用SQF2000作为其合格供应商的评估标准。
