Milano’s Cheese Corp. has been awarded the SQF 2000 Level 3 Excellent Certification by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI), the leading global authority on food safety and quality control in the food service industry.
Milano’s received the Level SQF 2000 Level 2 designation last year and then made the decision to proceed with the rigorous Level 3 certification process. The SQF 2000 Level 3 is the highest level of certification awarded to manufacturers and distributors by SQFI, and it is achieved by demonstrating a comprehensive implementation of food safety and quality management systems for more than a year. Through this system, manufacturers and distributors also receive either a compliant, good or excellent ranking.
Only 31 cheese companies nationwide have achieved this recognition and JVM Sales Corp d/b/a Milano’s Cheese Corp. is the only manufacturer focusing exclusively on grated and shredded Italian hard cheeses to earn the excellent level of the SQF 2000 Level 3 certificate. “Due to our food safety measures, consistency and competitive price, we are one of the fastest-growing cheese manufacturers in the U.S., and we know that this certification will distinguish us from the competition and assist in our international growth plans,” said Anthony Caliendo, vice president of sales and marketing for Milano’s Cheese Corp.
