INDIANAPOLIS and DENVER, July 18, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — AIB International recently inspected Flagship Food Group’s Logistics Division in Indianapolis and presented the center with a score of 960 out of a possible 1000 points. The 600,000 square-foot facility, now 12 years old, earned an impressive perfect score in maintenance practices and overall cleanliness.

Established in 1919, AIB International is one of the most well-respected audit firms in the industry.

Although Flagship Logistics undergoes several annual inspections by customers of its client, Ingredion, AIB International is the most critical inspection the distribution center receives. This is because companies must score 900 out of a possible 1000 points to pass AIB International’s annual audit in compliance with the Food Safety Modernization Act.
“The auditor we had this year was the same as we had last year, which is significant because she mentioned how improved our cleanliness and overall condition of the center was compared to last,” said Operations Manager Joe Brown. “This can be contributed to the new outstanding maintenance department that we created in January of 2016. Clearly, I have been blessed with a fantastic team.”
