Seda North America achieves FSSC 22000!

This month has brought a lot of exciting news for Seda North America. We have joined some amazing networks here in Wisconsin, pushed a brand new website live (check it out here; and now we are able to officially announce that we are FSSC 22000 certified!

Seda North America has become the first US paperboard food packaging company in the United States to achieve the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) Food Safety System Certification (FSSC 22000) bench marked standard.

FSSC 22000 is a GFSI-bench marked standard based on ISO 22000, with an added prerequisite program audit called PAS 223-2011, which Seda achieved. This internationally accepted certification scheme for is used for auditing and certification of food safety in the whole supply chain of an organization.

Seda North America’s customers can be confident that products purchased are not only of the highest quality but have been manufactured by meeting the requirements of this stringent food safety standard. This recent certification is an outstanding accomplishment for Seda North America, the newest member of Seda International Packaging Group, one of the world’s leading privately owned manufacturers of food packaging.
Very few food packaging manufacturers are currently FSSC certified as it is a long process usually brought about by customer demands. Standard audit time is 8 month to 1 year; Seda was able to achieve this standard in 4 months, including audit and certification.
Cliff Albert, Vice President of Sales and Marketing for Seda North America said “Food safety is the number one concern for our brand partners and packaging plays a very important role in their supply chain.  FSSC 22000 Certification ensures that we have the most effective food safety systems in place.  Being the first food service packaging company in North America to gain certification is an honor but more importantly, we hope our commitment helps raise the level of standards for safety within the packaging industry”.
Seda North America is currently the only US paperboard food packaging company with FSSC and 1 of only 6,155 companies worldwide who hold the certification.

We could not have achieved this level of certification without the help of all employees at Seda North America, especially our quality control team.
Congratulations to all involved!
