State & Federally Approved Commercial Kitchen
Maryland Packaging proudly features a full-sized incubator and accelerator kitchen, which you can use to create your foods either yourself, or through our professional staff.
What’s an accelerator kitchen?
Commercial accelerator kitchens help you build up your food business fast.
We help small start-up businesses expand and accelerate their growth with all the equipment and capabilities you need to start creating your product in bulk.
If you’re a business that’s been around for a little while, looking to grow, but your current set-up just can’t accommodate the demand you’ve received from your budding fan base, this is the perfect solution for you.
Get into big box stores with production in an SQF-certified facility.
Many big name brand stores, such as Whole Foods and countless grocery stores around the United States, won’t accept your food product unless it was made in an SQF-certified facility.
This is because SQF standards are higher than the basic FDA and USDA safety standards required on the federal and state level. SQF is part of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) started after many of the food outbreaks of the early 2000s. Their increased rigorous food standards cut down on outbreaks and demand ever greater food safety to:
- Reduce outbreaks
- Decrease recalls
- Slash liability issues
- Improve brand image
When we work together for better food quality, we all win – you win, we win, the consumer wins.
