Southshore is extremely pleased to announce that our Benton Harbor, Michigan distribution center and warehousing operations have recently received a score of 980 out of a possible 1,000 points from an AIB International, Inc. (American Institute of Baking) on-site food safety inspection audit. This rigorous and comprehensive compliance audit conducted by AIB confirmed that Southshore’s warehouse operations continue to meet and exceed AIB’s key requirements for keeping stored food products wholesome and safe for Southshore’s customers. Southshore initially received AIB certification for the Benton Harbor distribution center in April 2014.
This AIB Recognition Document is complimented by Southshore’s ISO 9001:2008 certification (now ISO 9001:2015 certification as of January 2018) of Southshore’s operations quality systems to provide assurance to Southshore’s customers that their products are stored, handled and safeguarded with training, processes and procedures that are reviewed by independent third party experts recognized for their industry knowledge and reputation.
Bob Oberheu, Southshore Senior Operations Manager, credits Bill Mannino, Benton Harbor Site Manager, and Bill’s dedicated staff to maintaining the high standards required by the AIB audit process to the benefit of Southshore’s warehouse customers.
