Our IFS Pacsecure Certification

Our IFS Pacsecure Certification Body

Our entire production facility is IFS PACsecure-certified, which means it measures up to the GFSI-recognized standard for packaging material suppliers and converters developed with the support of leading North American food and packaging material companies. IFS is an all-encompassing, internationally recognized food safety certification that is implemented across our entire facility, from the offices to the production floor.

IFS PACsecure certification involves third-party audits, which use advanced evaluation and reporting methods to verify that we deliver safe products according to current and evolving regulations. We continue to be trained and evaluated regularly. Find out more here.
