Twin Rivers Paper Company Demonstrates Commitment to Food Safety with Receipt of FSSC 22000 Certification for Food 包装

Madawaska, ME (June 9, 2021) – The Twin Rivers Paper Company has received FSSC 22000 Certification for Food 包装, for its New York-based, Lyonsdale, 莫霍克河谷, 密尔街 米尔斯. FSSC 22000 is a GSI recognized, food safety certification developed to improve consistency and integrity throughout all aspects of the food safety supply chain. Twin Rivers’ compliance to the requirements of this internationally recognized standard is another assurance that its food packaging products meet the food safety requirements its customers require.

“With the passing of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) in 2011, many of our customers are already certified or are in the process of becoming certified and statistics show that approximately one out of four companies are asking their suppliers to achieve certification. Achieving this industry-wide, 可辨认的, auditable standard tells our customers that we have the proper systems in place to ensure food-safe packaging. It’s something that is quickly becoming a necessary part of doing business,” said Jeff Hederick, Chief Commercial Officer.

The Food Safety Certification requirements provide a rigorous system to manage food safety risks and provide safe products for use by companies in the food industry. Achieving certification is a stringent process. Twin Rivers began filing for certification in 2018, which involved supplying many months of documented information, multiple training sessions, internal audits. 这个过程, which promoted internal adjustments, put the company in an even stronger position of confidence in its food safety program as well as advancing its preparedness for both FSSC and customer audits.

“This certification allows us to further support what food and restaurant brands are asking for from their suppliers. It brings everybody in the supply chain under a single food safety management umbrella. Customers who purchase food at restaurants such as McDonald’s or BURGER KING® can be assured that food safety is an integral part of the production process; starting with raw materials like paper and ending with the finished packaging,” said Rachel Van Wychen, 包装 Director.

The Twin Rivers food packaging papers that are manufactured at its FSSC 22000 certified 米尔斯 include brands such as 阿卡迪亚®, EcoBarrier®, EcoInfuse®.

Twin Rivers is currently working towards achieving FSSC 22000 for its Madawaska轧机 by the end of 2021.
