Flavor Ingredient Safety
Berje’s Flavor Ingredient Safety Assurance Program
Berjé is proud to announce the completion of our recent SQF Level 3 Recertification with a score of 99 and a rating of excellent. This achievement is the most recent step in Berjé’s commitment to maintaining the integrity, quality, and safety of our flavor ingredients. Protecting our customers is an ongoing commitment that has pushed Berjé to meet some of today’s highest global standards.
Our comprehensive testing and validation procedures are built on HACCP and GMP principles from start to finish. Every lot of material in our inventory has undergone testing in our Quality Control Labs to ensure that our customers are receiving a consistently exceptional product that is tested in the USA. Our standards allow us to provide a wide range of documentation on organic, natural, kosher, and halal products. In addition to our SQF certification, Berjé takes thorough measures to independently verify our products’ excellence.

Of course, the best security in the world is impossible to maintain without experienced staff trained in flavor safety procedures, combined with transparency and cooperation from our vendors. We have built long-standing and trusted relationships between our family of vendors and our wonderful Berje team, shipment by shipment, year after year. In many cases, these relationships have spanned several decades.
From the procurement process, to the streamlined order process, production, quality control, packing, and final checks, we assure seamless safety, quality, and value every step of the way.
