We’d like to share the good news that on October 2nd 2017 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 99.07 %.

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 nearly 44,000 restaurants in more than 135 countries and territories and is one of the Aon Hewitt Top Companies for Leaders in North America. In 2017, Yum! Brands was named among the top 100 Best Corporate Citizens by Corporate Responsibility Magazine. The company’s restaurant brands – KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell – are the global leaders of the chicken, pizza and Mexican-style food categories. Worldwide, the Yum! Brands system opens over six new restaurants per day on average, making it a leader in global retail development.

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!
