Blue Apron Upgrades Fulfillment Center Network, Achieves Nationwide SQF Food Safety Certification
NEW YORK, NY - Blue Apron may have started the year with a step in the right direction with its new food safety certification. The struggling meal delivery service was recently awarded certification under the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Food Safety Code for Manufacturing across its nationwide fulfillment centers in Linden, New Jersey; Richmond, California; and Arlington, Texas.
“Our customers trust Blue Apron to create and deliver high-quality meal experiences each and every time they cook with us,” said Brad Dickerson, CEO, in a recent press release. “Ensuring the safety and quality of our products is our highest priority as a business. We are proud to receive SQF Certification nationwide across our fulfillment center network, an achievement that reinforces our longstanding commitment to our stakeholders that our products are high-quality, safe, and trusted.”
The SQF Food Safety Code is an independent food safety standard administered by the Safe Quality Food Institute, and is recognized worldwide as one of the most exhaustive and uncompromising food safety and quality standards. Requiring producers to develop and implement a strict food safety system applied to every step of their supply chain, the SQF Certification ensures that products are produced, handled, processed, and distributed in accordance with some of the most rigorous standards in the industry.
