Colton, CA, November 10, 2014 - Lineage Logistics ("Lineage"), a warehousing and logistics company backed by Bay Grove, is proud to announce James Reynolds, Director of Food Safety & Compliance at Lineage, received the Outstanding Supplier Achievement Award at the Safe Quality Food Institute’s International Conference last week. Reynolds was honored for his demonstrated accomplishments in driving the widespread growth of Lineage’s Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification program.
SQF certification is recognized worldwide as one of the food industry’s most prestigious food safety and food quality designations. To achieve SQF certification, facilities must pass two meticulous onsite audits in which they are evaluated based on compliance with and implementation of rigorous food safety policies and procedures. Under Reynolds’ leadership, six Lineage facilities have been SQF-certified, and there are six additional facilities in various stages of the certification process.
“The SQF certification has become increasingly important to customers that are looking for verifiable assurances that their product is handled safely at all times, without exception. Our commitment to achieving SQF certification in all of our facilities nationwide will be a game-changer for Lineage, and I am confident we will fully realize that commitment under James’s exceptional leadership,” said Bill Hendricksen, CEO of Lineage Logistics.
“This honor truly represents the hard work and characteristic persistence of our team members and demonstrates our companywide commitment to world-class customer service,” said Reynolds. “I share this award with my fellow team members who excelled through the SQF implementation process, and I am proud of our collective achievement.”
