SynergyLabs is proud to announce the awarding of Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification, one of the most integral safety certifications of the global food supply chain, at its 200,000+ sq. ft. North Carolina facility to support pet supplement manufacturing. As a leading pet product manufacturer, attaining the certification is a cornerstone to expanding operations in supplements and other strategic innovations for brands under the SynergyLabs umbrella as well as co-manufacturing for select partners.
Megan Gouge, SynergyLabs quality manager and lead SQF practitioner, “We want the Synergy customer to know we care. We are committed to making safe, effective, and high-quality products for their pets, and the uncompromising standards set forth by SQF will give them that confidence every time.” To offer pet parents the best quality at an affordable price has always been a tenet for SynergyLabs and maintaining leading certifications signals to buyers across the globe they can trust its products and how they are made.
Richard Ticktin, CEO and founder of SynergyLabs, says, “Megan and her team have demonstrated time and time again our unwavering commitment to quality manufacturing. Our facility is best-in-class, and now we have the certifications to show that our processes are too.” Per the Food Marketing Institute (FMI), who administers the program, “SQF is a rigorous and credible food safety and quality program that is recognized by retailers, brand owners and food service providers world-wide. Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), the SQF family of food safety and quality codes are designed to meet industry, customer and regulatory requirements for all sectors of the food supply chain–from the farm all the way to the retail stores.”
