SQF Information Forum Series - Dallas

Tuesday, June 3, 2008

Arlington, TX 76006-7503

The SQF (Safe Quality Food) Program continues to experience a substantial growth in interest among retailers worldwide and an increasing number of retailers now request that their suppliers’ food safety and quality management systems are audited and certified to meet the requirements of the GFSI recognized programs such as SQF.

Buyers have committed to supporting third-party certification and are convinced of the benefits. Some suppliers, however, may have little knowledge of the SQF Program and are seeking further information and reassurance about its benefits. Therefore, in response to the resulting influx of inquiries about the SQF program, the SQF Institute will hold a series of information forums in the following location around the US.

Additional forums will be held on

Friday, June 6th in Chicago, IL
Wednesday, June 11th in Los Angeles, CA
Tuesday, June 17th in Atlanta, GA
Friday, June 20th in Boston, MA

Forums will begin at 9:00 a.m. and finish at approximately 4:00 pm.

A nominal fee of $40 will be charged per participant to help offset catering and organizational costs. The cost includes lunch, breaks and SQF Program materials.


For more information, please email Amanda Bond-Thorley or call 202-220-0606.
