SaltWorks®, the world’s foremost all-natural gourmet sea salt supplier, has successfully achieved SQF Level 2 certification with the highest possible rating of Excellent. Certification followed an intensive multi-day audit, conducted by NSF International in the fall of 2015, which verified SaltWorks’ commitment to food safety and quality meets the rigorous requirements of the Safe Quality Foods (SQF) Program and establishes that a strict food safety control process has been successfully implemented at SaltWorks’ state-of-the-art, custom-built salt processing facility located just outside of Seattle, Washington.
“We have always been committed to providing the highest quality and safest all-natural salts to our customers,” explained Mark Zoske, CEO of SaltWorks. “We recognized that the SQF certification program demonstrates integrity and responsibility, which reflects our core company values and the sea salts that we produce. It underscores how effective our proprietary processes are and how hard our team works to ensure we meet those safety and quality goals every day.”
SaltWorks' in-house quality control and engineering teams work diligently together to implement and improve rigorous safety processes, provide training to all staff members regardless of employment duties, and regularly develop technologies to ensure top quality and safety of all their products while preserving the artisanal craftsmanship and unique characteristics of each and every grain of salt.
