For the third year in a row, High Quality Organics (HQO) has achieved SQF Level 2 certification. This food safety certification is a critical part of servicing the leading food manufacturers and retailers in America and abroad. It is based on government and industry food safety requirements and ensures everyone in the supply chain, from growers to distributors, are producing a product to the highest quality and food safety standards.
SQF Certification is also recognized globally and benchmarked by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). Level 2 certification includes a rigorous audit process (just ask our quality team!) that ensures we follow Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point (HACCP) food safety regulations and are compliant with the Food Safety and Modernization Act (FSMA).

As a wholesale supplier of bulk organic herbs and spices, botanicals, teas, ancient grains, dried fruit and vegetables and more, HQO is proud to reach this level of food safety certification. A huge kudos goes to our Quality Team for ensuring we are always providing the best quality and safest products possible.
