HUNTINGDON VALLEY, Pa. — Multi-Flow Industries, a manufacturer of fountain-dispensed beverages, announced that it has recently received the Gold Certificate of Recognition for passing its 2008 Silliker Audit with a score of 97.7%. The audit covered food safety as well as GMP requirements. Silliker is recognized as one of the world’s leading food safety auditing firms, and has been accredited as a certification body for the Safe Quality Food (SQF) program of the Food Marketing Institute (FMI).

Their GMP and FSS audits combine a host of recognized industry practices and principles, as well as recommendations from the National Advisory Committee for Microbiological Criteria in Foods, Food and Drug Administration, and United States Department of Agriculture. These comprehensive audit evaluations involve a systems review as well as a physical assessment of the facility in the implementation of food safety and quality systems procedures.

Multi-Flow Industries voluntarily undergoes periodic independent audit scrutiny as part of their commitment to the manufacture of high-quality beverages using sustainable business practices and environmental consciousness.

CEO Mark Stephens of Multi-Flow Industries said, “We are honored to receive the Gold Certificate from Silliker. The audit results confirm our commitment to our facility, our colleagues, and most importantly, to the finished beverages that we are proud to provide to our customers.”

Brian Gottlieb, COO, is quick to stress the integral role that every employee makes in securing the Gold Certificate. “This achievement is only made possible by the dedication of every one of our colleagues.”

Multi-Flow Industries, based in Huntingdon Valley, PA, produces branded and private label iced tea, juices, carbonated soft drinks, and energy drinks in bag-in-the-box packages. In addition to the recent Gold Certificate of Recognition from Silliker, Multi-Flow Industries has been an OSHA VPP Star Site since 2005. Nearly half of Multi-Flow Industries’ revenue is derived from private label partnerships with convenience store chains, foodservice operators, and branded bottle and can manufacturers. The balance of Multi-Flow Industries’ revenue is generated from route delivery sales out of their 15 warehouses along the East Coast. The company was established in 1937.
