SAFE QUALITY FOODS (SQF)
Here at Dickson Industries, we strive to produce top-of-the-line goods for our customers, both locally and internationally. In 2017, Dickson Industries started the process for our SQF certification from the Safe Quality Foods Institute. For the certification to be awarded, we, as a company, had to prove that the necessary steps were being taken to ensure that every product that leaves our facility meets those standards. While some of those steps were already in place throughout the business, there were certain aspects that needed improvement. The president of the company, David Dickson, met with CIRAS from Iowa State University to create a plan that would ensure we were meeting those standards. With help from the gap assessment and CIRAS, Dickson Industries was able to obtain the SQF certification in 2018. To read more about the SQF certification, click here.
