Regulatory, Quality & Food Safety
Food Safety & Quality
We are committed to providing safe food and ensure that food safety and food quality procedures are followed each day. We have achieved continuous Safe Quality Foods (SQF) certification and have SQF Practitioners, as well as PCQI certified individuals, at each of our facilities.
We work closely with our suppliers, plant personnel, regulatory, outside auditing firms, and customers to provide safe and quality food ingredients.
We monitor plant and process environments for bacteria and pathogens that may contaminate the inbound and outbound products. We make appropriate resources available to implement food safety procedures using environmental testing results for tracking and tracing possible contamination.
We analyze feedback from plant personnel, customers, and suppliers to continually improve our processes, product quality, and production efficiency.
Denali Ingredients adheres to the applicable US laws for allergen labeling and segregation. Facilities are validated at regular intervals for the absence of allergens, via an accredited test method/laboratory. The raw materials are segregated per allergen and finished products are sealed with shrink wrap to reduce the risk of allergen cross-contamination. For regions outside of the US, the Denali regulatory department can provide the required supporting information.
