Diversified Transfer & Storage (DTS), a Salt Lake City UT-based public refrigerated warehouse, announced a successful result in earning Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification. SQF is administered by the Food Marketing Institute (FMI) and is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) benchmark. DTS has become the first cold storage public food warehouse in Utah to earn SQF Level 2 certification.
“We are pleased and proud to be able to offer a SQF-certified warehousing option to food producers and processors in the Intermountain Region,” said Randy Benish, DTS general manager. “Diversified Transfer & Storage is totally committed to food safety. Achieving this certification is a means to strengthen our relationship with our customers while ensuring the safe storage and handling of our customers’ food products. Protecting the consumer is DTS’s number one priority.” SQF certification is recognized worldwide as one of the food industry’s leading food safety and food quality designations. To earn this certification, a facility must pass two thorough onsite audits in which they are evaluated based on compliance with and implementation of rigorous food safety procedures and policies. DTS, which began business in 1988, is headquartered in Billings MT. An asset-based trucking company specializing in multi-temperature LTL transportation and multi-temperature warehouse storage, DTS has additional locations in Salt Lake City and Denver CO. The company also provides local pick-up and delivery, cross-dock, redistribution, pallet remanufacturing, and third-party logistics services. For additional information, access www.dtsb.com.
