Joplin, Mo.-based Hampshire Pet Products LLC (HPP), a producer of custom private label and other baked pet products, said it registered as meeting the requirements of the Safe Quality Food (SQF) 2000cm Code - Level 2, based on the Hazard Analysis at Critical Control Point (HACCP) Food Safety Plans by NSF International, Ann Arbor, Mich. The SQF Institute, a division of the Arlington, Va.-based Food Marketing Institute, administers the SQF Program, which provides independent certification that a supplier’s food safety and quality management system complies with international and domestic food safety regulations.“While HPP has been successful in quality audits in the past, this process was much more intensive and required commitment from all levels of our operation,” said Julie Larson, general manager of the company. “I am so proud of this accomplishment and of all the HPP team members that made it possible.”
