Trickling Springs Ranch, a division of Trickling Springs Creamery located in Koshkonong Missouri, was awarded Safe Quality Food (SQF) level 2 certification for their yogurt and cheese processing lines.

The Safe Quality Food Institute (SQFI) is recognized worldwide by retailers and foodservice providers who require a rigorous, credible food safety management system. This enables suppliers to assure their customers that food has been processed and handled according to the highest possible standards at all levels of the supply chain. SQF certification allows food safety systems to be verified and validated throughout the food chain, increasing brand protection and consumer confidence. More information can be found at
