Tegrant Corp., Alloyd Brands, Certified under Sustainable Forestry Initiative Chain of Custody Program
Tegrant Corp., Alloyd Brands, has received Sustainable Forestry Initiative (SFI) Chain of Custody Certification for demonstrating control throughout its purchasing and production processes during audits conducted at its Printed Products locations in Batavia, IL, and Spartanburg, SC.
Alloyd Brands Printed Products demonstrated that the raw material in its supply chain came from legal and environmentally responsible sources. SFI certification promotes responsible forestry practices. The SFI Chain-of-Custody tracks fiber content from certified lands, through production and manufacturing, to the end product. The SFI label signifies to the consumer that wood and paper products are from well-managed forests, backed by a rigorous, third-party certification audit.
“I am very pleased with the SFI Certification and the audit results achieved by our Batavia and Spartanburg locations. Both plants passed these audits with zero non-conformances”, says William Kelly, president of Alloyd Brands. “With this certification, Alloyd Brands confirms its commitment to provide our customers fully integrated, innovative, and sustainable packaging solutions that differentiate our customer’s brands in the marketplace.”
SFI certified sources carry SFI labels that specify that some or all of the product’s fiber content comes from SFI-certified forests, Canadian Standards Association (CSA), and/or the American Tree Farm System forest management standards; it also shows that the manufacturer meets SFI standard requirements for fiber sourcing.
