Quality You Can Count On
Sysco's Quality Assurance department is the largest in the industry. With over 180 professionals located around the world, this team is dedicated to only one mission: to deliver Sysco Brand products that meet the most exacting standards in terms of quality, safety and consistency.
To ensure our customers' success and piece-of-mind, Sysco's Merchandising and Marketing departments work closely with our global Quality Assurance team to initiate detailed product specifications and audits in the growing fields, in the production facilities and in our redistribution centers.
Comprised of chemists, food scientists and other technical service experts, our Quality Assurance team has the authority to disapprove any supplier who fails to meet Sysco's rigorous quality parameters, and to recall any product from the marketplace. These professionals are given a high level of autonomy to make these sensitive and crucial decisions.
Special care is also taken with key product lines where safety is a concern and where product consistency may vary - such as with fresh and processed meat, poultry, seafood and produce.
Through written product specifications and continual on-line inspections during the processing of Sysco Brand products, the Quality Assurance team functions as Sysco's eyes and ears through all stages of Sysco Brand product development. Such close monitoring guarantees our customers consistently safe, wholesome and high-quality products.
