Newton, WI, January 5, 2012 – Omega Fields® is happy to announce that all flaxseed products manufactured within the facilities of its parent company, ENRECO, Inc., have received SQF 2000 Level 3 Certification, a worldwide standard, assuring that only the highest quality ground flaxseed is used in their human, equine, canine, and poultry supplements.
The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Institute is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative and by retailers and foodservice providers worldwide as the epitome of rigorous, credible food safety management systems, with Level-3 being their most demanding certification program. ENRECO is the only flaxseed manufacturer in North America to attain this level of food safety and quality inspection, assuring their position as the quality leader in the flaxseed ingredient industry.
Sean Moriarty, ENRECO President and CEO stated, "Microbial cleanliness of raw ingredients is always paramount at ENRECO. Since our inception we have been serious about meeting our customers' demands for ingredients of highest cleanliness levels. Their concerns are our concerns."
VP of Omega Fields Allison Kuhl added: "This is very important for Omega Fields. Knowing that all of the flaxseed in our human and animal supplements is certified by the highest standard of cleanliness and quality is of huge importance to our retailers and customers."
SQF Level-3 certification of its flaxseed ingredients is only the most recent achievement of ENRECO's uncompromising commitment to provide products of the highest and safest quality. Whole grain-related issues of cleanliness, safety, and shelf stability have previously been addressed by instituting a triple-cleaning process, a proprietary stabilization treatment, and a third party-validated 5‐log Kill Step so its flaxseed ingredients are guaranteed pathogen-free with very low total microbial values, and are guaranteed shelf stable for a minimum of 12 months under ambient storage conditions.
