Inclusion Technologies LLC, a leading manufacturer of specialty inclusions and nut extenders/replacers, has been awarded the SQF Level 3 Certification by the Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI).

SQFI is a globally trusted, recognized, and accepted food safety and quality program and Level 3 is the most stringent and highest level certification awarded.

“Inclusion Technologies places a high priority on the quality and safety of our products,” says Greg Anderson, quality assurance manager. “This certification was truly a company-wide pursuit and accomplishment, and it conveys to our customers that our facility, our employees, our quality systems, manufacturing processes, and operational procedures have been audited, verified, and certified by a credible authority and meet their recognized standards for food quality and safety.”

“Achieving SQF Level 3 certification was a primary goal that we set when we first acquired this facility a year ago” adds Chris Jansen, Inclusion Technologies president. “This accomplishment verifies the commitment that our entire team has to quality, safety, and the reliability of our products, which in turn builds confidence with our customers and helps to protect the value of their trusted brands when using our ingredients. In addition, the positioning of our business and facility as a certified nut-free ingredient provider demands that this promise be supported by an excellent quality and safety program such as SQF.”

Based in Atchison, Kan., Inclusion Technologies is an ingredient and management company focused on investments and acquisitions in the food inclusion space. Through a planned “buy and build” strategy, along with planned strategic alliances, the company’s goal is to develop a broad-based portfolio of specialty inclusions focused on innovative ingredient solutions and supported by superior customer service.
