Jerome, ID — Idaho Milk Products has once again received the highest SQF rating in Dairy Food Processing for their Milk Protein Concentrate, Milk Protein Isolate, Milk Permeate Powder and Cream. The Safe Quality Food (SQF) rating is one of the most important forms of external validation, one that is valued greatly by customers and the industry.

“This is a significant achievement thanks to everyone for their efforts and dedication in making this happen,” commented Dave Anderson, Vice President of Operations. “With the many challenges faced in 2020, the IMP team continues to maintain and keep the plant running at the highest level.”

”We are thrilled to have achieved a score of 99 on our SQF audit for the second year in a row,” said Brook Leguineche, Director of Quality Assurance. “The attainment of another 99, shows the continued commitment of Idaho Milk Products to provide safe and quality products to our customers.”

Idaho Milk Products also received an excellent plant inspection rating from the Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) for the outstanding condition and cleanliness of their facility and processing equipment.

IMP’s food facility registration was renewed for the 2020-2022 cycle for maintaining a Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Grade A classification, for product safety.
