Lincolnshire-based ambient food products and ingredients company, Sleaford Quality Foods (SQF), has unveiled a new herb production facility in Turkey.
The company invested in the 10,500 square metre facility through its parent company, Jain Farm Fresh.
The move will enhance SQF's ability to provide the best herbs and spices to its customers across the globe, the company said.
'Commitment To Traceability'
James Arnold, Managing Director of Sleaford Quality Foods, said, "This new facility is a huge boost to our capabilities. It means SQF now has even tighter control on traceability, quality, and testing.
"Our commitment to traceability means we have full control of sourcing as we deal directly with farmers, meaning our customers can trace our products from farm to fork."
The new facility in Turkey opens a year after SQF's parent company launched a new, state-of-the-art spice processing facility in India, the company said.
The 14,000 square metre facility processes 24,000 metric tonnes of spices each year.
"Together, these two facilities are game-changers for SQF – and, more importantly, our customers. We look forward to working with customers old and new to take herb and spice production and supply into a whole new, exciting era," Arnold added.
