Important Certifications and Compliances

Various quality assurance administrations across the globe have defined guidelines and standard requirements so food and pharma distribution is safe for consumers, from initial production to final consumption.

Econo-Pak is actively certified on the state level, global level, and anything else in between to assure quality packaging materials and processes for our clients. Whether it is propriety requirements, allergy restrictions, or religious diet inclinations, we are devoted in our commitment to quality control and food safety measures.

Below, we’ve outlined some of the certifications we hold and the compliance standards we adhere to:

SQF Level 3 Certified

Safe Quality Food Certified (SQF Level 3)

Recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), SQF certification incorporates a rigorous food safety risk management system. SQF Level 3 includes both food safety and quality management requirements and is the most demanding of all the available systems.

Food and Drug Administration Certified (Fda Compliant)

Food and Drug Administration Certified (FDA Compliant)

The FDA oversees all food manufacturing and processing plants (with the exception of animal products) and develops the laws, rules, and regulations for American food safety. We adhere to FDA regulations in all of our manufacturing plants.

Costco Safety and Quality Audit Certified

Costco is just one of the customers with whom Econo-Pak is independently audited and certified. Any site that produces a product directly for Costco Wholesale Corp. or one of their buyers must first be approved through this audit process.

Organic Certified by Baystate Organic Certifiers

Responsible gluten management is essential for consumer safety and wellbeing, especially those with Celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. Our gluten-free certification involves thorough food assessments, food and ingredient list management, and strict labeling practices.
