Sealstrip Corp. announced it has met the requirements for the IFS PACsecure certification at a Higher Level as of May 2022.
IFS (International Feature Standards) PACsecure is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).
“IFS PACsecure assesses product and process compliance in relation to the quality and safety of packaging products. IFS Certified companies ensure their services, materials, and products meet customer and legal requirements.”
Sealstrip has been undertaking the process for certification for the past two years, while managing the significant uptick in demand for packaging due to pandemic-triggered shifts in consumer purchasing decisions.
“Packaging is an integral part of the global food supply chain and we are proud to do our part to ensure product quality, safety, and compliance for our customers,” said Sealstrip President Heather Chandler.
Sealstrip already performed quality and compliance programs organized by a special safety task force. Materials meet food safety standards and are reviewed in design and quality control, and Good Manufacturing Practices (GMPs) are integral to employee training and education. Previously, Sealstrip has received top ratings from the American Institute of Baking (AIB) for more than a decade, enabling it to produce easy open and resealable convenience features for flexible packaging across a variety of industries and for some of food’s largest brands.
