We’d like to share the good news that on October 7, 2019 Key Container has again passed the extensive yearly food safety audit for Yum! Brands, Inc. with flying colors. The audit conducted by William Thomas Huntley & Associates achieved the impressive score of 99.53 %.
This all-encompassing audit closely examined not only cleanliness and sanitation of our building’s interior and exterior but also the equipment and machinery used in Yum! Brand’s sub-contractor’s packaging Key Container manufactures. Some of the areas closely scrutinized and scored were: box quality, job center as well as overall plant cleanliness, pest control, preventive maintenance procedures, ceiling condition, lighting safety and mock recall testing.
Yum! Brands, Inc., based in Louisville, Kentucky, has over 48,000 restaurants in more than 145 countries and territories primarily operating the company’s restaurant brands – KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell – global leaders of the chicken, pizza and Mexican-style food categories. Worldwide, the Yum! Brands system opens over eight new restaurants per day on average, making it a leader in global retail development. In 2018, Yum! Brands was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability North America Index and ranked among the top 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine. In 2019, Yum! Brands was named to the Bloomberg Gender-Equality Index for the second consecutive year.
We hope you’ll agree that passing the Yum Brands, Inc. Quality Compliance Audit with a score in the 99th percentile sends a strong message of how serious we at Key Container take our commitment to providing our customers with the utmost level of safety and comfort when trusting us to package their food and industrial products.
Congratulations to all team members who were responsible for these outstanding results!
