The Flexible Packaging Group facility received a score of 97, the Drum and Pail facility received a score of 95.

Each step throughout our various processes engages our employees in the food safety culture. This certification reinforces to our customers that we are committed to being a reliable packaging supplier within our various supply chains,” says Tom McCarthy, Flexible Packaging General Manager at CDF Corporation.
