Recently attained Safe Quality Foods endorsement, and Costco organic certification, ensure new Southern California facility meets stringent food safety standards.

West Coast Cold Storage (WCCS) recently attained prestigious Safe Quality Foods (SQF) certification at its state-of-the-art cold storage facility in the Jurupa Valley area of Southern California. The new certification also is supported by the “coveted” Costco addendum and organ certification, the company reported.

“As the newest and highest-rated cold storage facility in Southern California, we are proud to offer our partners unparalleled service, flexibility, and peace of mind,” Ricardo Rios, WCCS general manager, said in a news release. “Our certifications, combined with immediate freezer space availability and cutting-edge technology, set us apart as the go-to partner for businesses looking to optimize their cold chain logistics.”

WCCS is in its second year of boosting cold chain logistics in the region. The company’s temperature-controlled facility, which spans 127,000 sq. ft., offers immediate freezer capacity at minus-10 degrees Fahrenheit to meet the needs of frozen and refrigerated manufacturers and logistics partners.  

The recent quality certifications underscore the facility’s “adherence to the highest standards of food safety and quality management,” the company emphasized, ensuring goods are stored and handled in compliance with stringent standards. The facility also boasts an advanced warehouse management system and expanded electronic data interchange capabilities, promoting “seamless and efficient” operations for clients.
