Caribbean Food Delights Now SQF Certified!
We are proud to announce that Caribbean Food Delights is now SQF (Safe Quality Food) certified! The SQF Program is a leading, global food safety and quality certification program and management system, designed to meet the needs of buyers and suppliers worldwide. The Program provides independent certification that a supplier's food safety and quality management system complies with international and domestic food safety regulations. This enables suppliers to assure their customers that food has been produced, processed, prepared and handled according to the highest possible standards, at all levels of the supply chain.
SQF is designed as a food safety program, but it also covers product quality, a feature that is unique to a certification program of this type. Assuring consistent quality and meeting buyer specifications are important aspects of the buyer-supplier relationship.
SQF certification is supported by an increasing number of U.S. and international retailers and foodservice providers who express a preference for suppliers who implement HACCP-based (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) food safety and quality management systems.
Caribbean Food Delights Gets SQF Level 3 Recertification
Caribbean Food Delights (CFD), the largest global frozen food manufacturer of Jamaican Style Patties announced that the company has received its fifth consecutive Level 3 Certification from the Safe Quality Foods (SQF) Institute.
The SQF certification program is a globally recognized food safety and quality management system and its Level 3 status is the highest attainable award. To achieve this status, CFD manufacturing facility and corporate office underwent a rigorous auditing process including reviewing of policies, procedures and systems. The stringent procedure provides assurance that products manufactured by CFD have passed both local and international food safety and quality standards including Hazard Analysis Critical Control Points (HACCP), a favorable food safety management system among major retailers.
“Our 36 year old company has built a sterling reputation on food safety and quality and being SQF Level 3 certified demonstrates our level of commitment,” said Raquel Pascual, Quality Control Manager. “To maintain our top position over the last five years was only attainable and achievable with phenomenal teamwork.”
Caribbean Food Delights distribution network spans across the United States, the Caribbean and Commissaries worldwide.
VHFF Donates Walk-through Fever Scan Machine

The Vincent HoSang Family Foundation (VHFF) recently donated US$38,000 to purchase Jamaica’s first Diaspora-donated walk-through thermal sensing unit to outfit the Norman Manley International Airport in Kingston, as part of that country’s Ebola Preparedness and Response Activities.
The check presentation followed an appeal made by the Jamaican Consulate in New York, which is spearheading the Jamaica Ebola Prevention Program’s response activities in the Diaspora. “After hearing the Jamaican Consulate’s appeal at the recent Cornwall College Old Boys’ Association Dinner Dance outlining the urgency for Jamaica’s preparedness against the Ebola virus, it resonated with me,” said Vincent HoSang, Chairman.
The VHFF’s donation will cover the cost of one of five thermal scanning machines needed. “The Jamaica Ebola Prevention Program calls for the urgent procurement of several items, including five (5) state-of-the-art thermal scanning machines,” said Jamaica’s Consul General, Herman LaMont. “The Consulate is extremely appreciative and thankful that the VHFF has responded to the call for assistance.”
He said he is particularly thrilled that the Diaspora can join forces with corporate Jamaica to fight the threat of the deadly Ebola virus.
The donation is the third of its kind, as two similar thermal scanning machines were earmarked for the Sangster International Airport in Montego Bay and the Falmouth Cruise Ship Complex in Trelawny, donated by Jamaica-based Sagicor Insurance Group and Supreme Ventures, respectively.
