Ensuring that the food we eat every day is safe and of high quality is a task that takes an incredible amount of commitment and effort. Dedicated food safety auditors and practitioners work tirelessly to protect the global food supply chain and further the mission of the SQF Program.
The SQF Excellence Awards, presented by Exemplar Global, celebrate SQF professionals who have shown exemplary work and dedication within the food safety industry. Nominees for these awards have been submitted in two categories: Excellence in SQF Auditing and SQF Practitioner Leadership.
The Excellence in SQF Auditing Award goes to a credentialed SQF auditor who demonstrates exceptional performance through high-quality audits, professional development activities, leadership and mentorship skills, and promotion of food safety culture.
The Excellence in SQF Practitioner Leadership Award goes to an SQF practitioner who demonstrates extraordinary leadership and promotion of food safety at their current site.
