Symbol of Quality

For over 60 years, Quality Chekd has helped dairy processors offer the consumers world class food products that pass rigorous testing procedures and are endorsed with the Quality Chekd “Blue Q. Red Chek” logo. Consumers can be sure that when they spot the familiar Quality Chekd trademark, they are getting the best in fresh, wholesome and delicious dairy foods. 

 

Member dairies have many Quality Chekd services and supplies ready for their use. Quality Chekd staff travels to dairies across the country to counsel them on quality, training, sales, or safety.

 

Quality Chekd Means Business
Quality Chekd only insists on one critical requirement: QUALITY. As Dairy Field Magazine reported, "Monthly lab testing, frequent processing plant visits and stringent supplier standards ensure products carrying the Quality Chekd trademark meet or exceed standards. Indeed, those who do not meet the organization's rigorous, higher-than-industry standards have had membership or supplier status revoked."

 

All of this adds up to quality you can trust!

Sell-by Date
Tells the store how long to display the product, not how long it is safe.
It is unwise to buy foods left out past those dates

Best-if Used-by (or before) Dates
Indicates how long the product will retain flavor & quality, not safety

Use-by Date
Is the last date the manufacturer recommends using the product but also usually refers to quality, not safety.

When in doubt, throw it out!
