Certification is a testament to the system and processes that Aurochemicals uses.
WASHINGTONVILLE, N.Y. (June 4, 2018) – Aurochemicals, the internationally recognized manufacturer of natural aroma ingredients for the flavor and fragrance industry, is pleased to announce it recently received an E-Excellent rating from the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) on an unannounced Safe Quality Food (SQF) Food Safety Code for Manufacturing audit at the headquarters facility in Washingtonville, New York.
Aurochemicals received an E — Excellent rating — with a near-perfect score of 99 percent as part of its annual re-certification. This is the fourth consecutive year Aurochemicals has received the E-Excellent rating and the third consecutive year they received a score of 99 percent. The SQF Food Safety Code for Manufacturing certification is a Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point (HACCP) based food safety plan, benchmarked by GFSI. Aurochemicals’ SQF certification is a testament to the system and processes that the company uses in developing its products and the excellent safety and quality of the completed products.
“At Aurochemicals, we pride ourselves on having the utmost standards for product integrity in our facilities by only using the highest quality ingredients,” said Aurochemicals’ Vice President and CEO Deo Persaud. “We provide the flavor and fragrance industry with products that will always exceed our customers’ expectations.”
Just last year, Aurochemicals completed a one-year expansion project, allowing the company to have increased space for research and development and quality control work in addition to more space for state-of-the-art corporate offices, inventory maintenance and production.
Companies wishing to become SQF certified must go through a list of steps, including: Registering the company with the SQF assessment database; designating an employee as an SQF practitioner; choosing a level of certification; and eventually passing an audit, performed by a licensed SQF certification body, which includes reviews of documents and an assessment of the company’s facility. The certification is held in high regard by food processors, retailers and food service providers across the world.
“Aurochemicals is known for exceptional quality and food safety, and to receive this high score for another year is testament to our attention to detail for our system, processes and documentation,” said Sagar Lachmansing, Vice President of Food Safety and Quality Assurance and Aurochemicals’ SQF practitioner. “We’re honored to be recognized by an organization such as the Safe Quality Food Institute with consistent rankings and we appreciate their acknowledgment of our food safety initiatives.”
This achievement could only be accomplished by a team of people passionate about their craft. Through continuous improvement initiatives, ongoing training, and exceptional teamwork, Aurochemicals has been able to stay at the top of their class in food safety and processes. And of course, none of this could be possible without a fully committed management team that provides resources and facilitates that support the group’s efforts, and sets advancements and continual growth as top priorities.
