SQFQuality & HACCP

Ballas Egg Products Corp. has embraced the directives of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) by voluntarily electing to become certified under the SQF Code (Safe Quality Food).  The SQF Code is a food safety and food quality management system that utilizes HACCP principles and guidelines developed by the National Advisory Committee on Microbiological Criteria for Food (NACMCF) and the Codex Alimentarius Commission.  The SQF Code has been officially recognized to meet or exceed all of the GSFI benchmark criteria.

Achieving SQF certification means that our food safety system, including our HACCP Plan, and our food quality system have been audited by a third party and that these programs have been certified to satisfy all of the requirements of the current version of the code.  The current version of the code is “SQF 2000” and Ballas Egg has been assigned the facility identification number “112512.”

Quality egg products depend on quality raw materials.  This is why Ballas Egg only breaks nest run (farm run) or graded eggs that are less than 30 days old.  We do not handle any “chex” or under-grade eggs in our plant.

 

 

Ballas Egg agrees with the concept of humane treatment for animals.  For this reason, we have voluntarily chosen to become certified under the United Egg Producers Certified program.  This science-based animal welfare program addresses various aspects of husbandry and animal care that we support.  As a certified participant, we agree to purchase shell eggs from suppliers who are also certified under this program.
