IQC - The ISO Pros
of Chesapeake, VA & ISO 9001 Experts
Many businesses and food organizations think that consumers really do not care about where their brands source their products from; they think of it this way because they know that the consumers would consider it as a filter because when the market trusts them, they would automatically trust the source from where the business or the organization got it from.
However, that is not what the case is. More often than not, businesses, companies, and organizations that operate in the food industry or sector care and consider where their brands get their sources and produces from – and that’s one thing that we can help you out with here at IQC – the ISO Professionals.
The Importance of Ethical Sourcing
The Safe Quality Food Institute, or more commonly known and referred to as the SQFI, is the organization that designed, developed, and published the Ethical Sourcing Standard that is to be adopted and observed by businesses, companies, and facilities in all food supply chains.
No matter what your position is – and regardless of who you supply to, having an Ethical Sourcing Certification can change your game for the better.
Imagine it like this – you are a consumer and you purchase your meat only from “COMPANY X.” Of course you trust COMPANY X, but how about where COMPANY X gets its produce from? What if it’s a farm from the other side of the world that no one ever knows nothing of? Would it be safe for you? Or would you consider purchasing from COMPANY Y next time?
That is how important Ethical Sourcing is – and for sure, if you’re in the same shoes as consumers, you would think the same.
