Our Facilities are now SQF Certified!

We are proud to announce that all four of our facilities are now Level 2 Safe Quality Food (SQF) certified. These facilities include: Farmers Creamery, makers of Kalona® SuperNatural™ bottled milk and butter products; Frytown Warehouse & Distribution facility; Kalona Farms, milk receiving facility; and Kalona Creamery, retail shop and future cheese production facility.  

Food Safety and Quality

Food safety has always been a priority for us. The SQF certification is proof that we comply with regulatory requirements and demonstrate a commitment to food safety. This program is endorsed by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) and is recognized internationally. Sue Gessner, the managing partner of Farmers Creamery said:

“Food safety and delivering high quality Kalona SuperNatural products have always been our top priorities. The SQF certification is just one more way we can show that commitment to our consumers.”

The Certification Process

We started this rigorous certification process in early 2016 and spent nearly two years creating the extensive documentation required by SQF food safety policies and procedures. Bill Evans, CEO said:

“I am so proud of our employees and what they have accomplished over the last few years. This certification requires a company-wide commitment in order to be successful. Becoming certified was our top goal for 2017 and we are excited about what the future holds!”
