HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. /New York Netwire/ — Multi-Flow Industries, a manufacturer of fountain-dispensed beverages, announced that it has recently received an “excellent” rating on their 2011 Silliker Audit with a score of 97.3 percent. The audit covered Food Safety as well as GMP requirements.
Silliker is recognized as one of the world’s leading food safety auditing firms, and has been accredited as a certification body for the Safe Quality Food (SQF) program of the Food Marketing Institute (FMI). Their GMP and FSS audits combine a host of recognized industry practices and principles, as well as recommendations from the National Advisory Committee for Microbiological Criteria in Foods, Food and Drug Administration, and United States Department of Agriculture. These comprehensive audit evaluations involve a systems review as well as a physical assessment of the facility in the implementation of food safety and quality systems procedures.
Multi-Flow Industries voluntarily undergoes periodic independent audit scrutiny as part of their commitment to the manufacture of high-quality beverages incorporating sustainable business practices and environmental consciousness.
CEO Mark Stephens of Multi-Flow Industries said, “We feel honored and blessed to have had a record-breaking year, financially, on the eve of our 75th Year Anniversary (which kicks off in February, and will be celebrated throughout 2012). In addition to our earnings reports, and the new brands that we’ve recently introduced, we are particularly honored to receive an ‘excellent’ rating in terms of Good Manufacturing Practices and Food Safety from Silliker. Consistent with prior years, the audit results confirm our commitment to our facility, our colleagues, and most importantly, to the finished beverages that we are proud to provide to our customers.”
Gary Moore, Director of Quality Assurance at Multi-Flow, is quick to stress the integral role that every employee makes in securing the excellent rating. “This achievement rests on the hard work of every single one of our colleagues, who live and breathe their dedication to Food Safety all year long.”
