Quality and Food Safety Policy (we’re serious about this)
Let’s just say we are strict about this because, well, it’s important.
Versatile is FDA and EPA certified. This makes us a perfect match for all CPG manufacturers.
Recent trends in the food industry show that customers are demanding “food transparency,” meaning they want to know what’s in their food and where it’s coming from. Versatile Packagers offers food packaging under the stringent safety guidelines.
We recognize that strong food safety and general packaging quality programs require commitment and adequate investment in resources to achieve our objectives. Accordingly, we will invest in the right people, processes and systems to be successful. Here are some specifics:
We have a full-time Quality Assurance Practitioner – reporting directly to and working closely with our C-suite – who has the responsibility and authority to oversee our food safety and packaging quality programs at our South Atlantic and sister facilities.
We will hire and manage team members who will be expected to competently carry out their jobs, especially when it comes to quality contract packaging and safety of food.
We will conduct appropriate training to educate our new and existing team members about critical topics, such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs), food defense, allergen management, sanitation and traceability.
We will have industry-leading software systems and equipment in place to support our operations.
We will maintain all records in accordance with requirements for food safety and traceability.
We will open our facilities to be audited by third-party experts and by our customers, as required.
We are completely committed to quality work and safe foods, and we will engage in numerous activities to ensure that we live up to that promise. This policy will be reviewed on a regular basis to ensure that it continues to reflect the aims and aspirations of our company.
