(Fort Wayne, IN – August 20, 2013) – Tippmann Group is pleased to announce that its Interstate Warehousing – Murfreesboro, TN location has achieved a level 2 Safe Quality Foods (SQF) Certification. SQF is a food safety program developed by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) based on government and industry food safety requirements. This food safety certification is the culmination of a multi-year effort in program and process development around food safety. This is a significant development as Interstate Warehousing moves toward certification at other facilities within our network.
“Interstate Warehousing is constantly working to meet and exceed the demands of our industry and customers,” said John Tippmann, Jr., Tippmann Group President. “This certification is an example of our commitment to food safety and quality. While it is not required by our customers, it is one more way we can provide value and peace of mind to them. We believe the SQF program is a great way to show our commitment to our customers. We are proud of the management and staff at our Murfreesboro facility for being the first warehouse in our network to achieve this certification.”
