Certifications & Associations
Packaging is a key component of food preservation, food protection from contaminants, and the main method of communication to retail consumers regarding ingredients and potential allergens present in their food purchases. Our Integrated Health and Safety, Food Safety and Quality Management Systems provide the standards and controls that enable Tempo Plastics to maintain our high standards of producing quality packaging and meet your product requirements. Quality Systems: Tempo Plastics Limited has been certified since 1996 with the Quality Management System ISO 9001: 2008. ISO has been the cornerstone of all aspects of our company. It also formatted the framework for us to adopt Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP’s) identified through the HACCP food safety program PACsecure in 2010. Building on this already solid foundation led us to enhance our food safety program to achieve certification in 2013 to IFS PACsecure which is recognized as a Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI). The IFS PACsecure Standard, developed in conjunction with the Canadian Food Inspection Agency and a broad spectrum of industry representatives, specifically applies to all forms of primary and secondary packaging materials.

Our diverse customer base and ever expanding marketplace involves on-site audits for various quality systems. We have participated in Ethical and Food Safety audits for large multi-national corporations always with great success and recognition. Please contact your Account Manager or Customer Service Representative to request copies of our certificates or more information pertaining to our quality systems.
