Food retailers and food service companies are pivotal in promoting public health through the delivery of safe, nutritious and flavorful foods. To satisfy customers and drive repeat business, supermarkets, restaurants, specialty retailers and food service companies are now setting minimum food safety, quality and sustainability specifications for the supply chain, as well as strengthening internal training and handling protocols.
As the final link in the value chain to consumers, retailers and restaurants are on the frontlines of food safety and quality assurance. To protect your reputation and limit your liability from food safety incidents and recalls, your quality assurance department needs to have the most competent and capable resources at its disposal.

Grocers and restaurants alike are grappling with sustainability issues that extend beyond food production. Environmental claims for food packaging, cutlery and products on the non-food aisles of the store should all meet clear standards to ensure that they are not misleading consumers with "greenwashing" claims.
SCS provides extensive environmental claims certifications and validations to ensure that your private label products, food packaging and eating utensils live up to the environmental claims they assert, in full conformance with US Federal Trade Commission Green Guides. We also work directly with retailers to help you establish specifications for private label products vendors.
