The Value of FSSC & SQF Consulting
Consumers today are engaged with their food. Ensuring that ingredients are sourced from trusted suppliers is important. In modern global supply chains, food must travel long distances to reach the table. It is important to be able to guarantee safety and quality of the products being offered. A certification from the Safe Quality Food (SQF) Institute or the ISO approved Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) demonstrates a commitment to providing the highest quality food products to customers. Certification can be a lengthy process, and it is important to get it right the first time. Consider an SQF consulting or an FSSC consulting service to guide your business through the process.
The Safe Quality Food Institute is recognized by retailers and food service providers. SQF training will introduce a business to the SQF system and help to clarify the requirements needed to display the SQF logo on products. SQF consulting services work with businesses to assess the entire operation and supply chain to ensure that there are no surprises in the certification application. Certified SQF consultants will notice areas of an operation that do not meet code, and help a business implement the proper actions to resolve the problem.
FSSC auditing is designed to assess an entire business for weaknesses which will not meet the strict ISO standards. Professionals working in FSSC consulting are experts in the ISO standards and equipped to recognize issues in operations and supply chains. FSSC codes are wide reaching and it can be overwhelming to grasp all of the criteria without a trained eye. FSSC auditing will guide a business’s application, ensuring it meets criteria on the first application.
SGF training and FSSC consulting saves time and money in the long run. Certification can be an uncertain road to navigate alone. Trained professionals provide a road map, saving any headaches from missed, or misunderstood, requirements.
