WILSONVILLE, Ore., June 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Gargoyle Storage and Distribution Inc. (GSD), located in Wilsonville Oregon, has earned its SQF Level 2 Certification for both the bottling of food-grade oils and storage of food products.
"SQF certification was the logical next step for our organization," says Mark Nyman, President and Owner. "We have been serving the industrial and food service markets as an oil supplier for almost a decade. Two years ago we decided to bring it in-house to ensure the high quality and consistency of our products. Now, SQF Level 2 Certification allows us to expand our services as a co-packer that is capable of supporting the retail markets going forward."
In conjunction with the SQF certification, GSD is adding a second bottling line that will double production capacity and support a range of retail sized packaging options.
"By expanding our capabilities we are increasing the commitment to supporting local production for the Pacific NW marketplace," adds Operations Manager, Ron Mudgett. "We want to be an option for companies that may have been forced to have their products bottled hundreds of miles away and then trucked in, to now have that production done locally. Bottling locally reduces cost, increases flexibility, and is better environmentally as well."
