Ray Haddad

Hello! I'm Ray, the Lead Trainer & Managing Director at Food Surety. I am a food professional myself, and I know how difficult it can be when you want to do a great job building and implementing a process that meets expectations, but the expectations or the how to get there need to be clarified!

I believe everyone in the industry deserves the knowledge and confidence to do their job right. I am driven by food professionals' experiences of light bulb moments and breakthroughs in their thinking. Therefore, I deliver courses with the tools and insights you need to excel.

Since 2007, I've worked in quality assurance, auditing, consulting, training, and as an advisor in international projects in the food industry. I have a proven track record of conducting hundreds of audits, including external 3rd party certification audits, as an auditor/verifier recognised by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI). Additionally, I have trained thousands of food professionals across different sectors and regions, including New Zealand, Southeast Asia, and the Middle East.

So let's work together to support you in protecting food for all and creating a safer and more sustainable food system.

What other Food Professionals say about us

I’m passing on a recommendation for a good course and trainer. I recently completed VACCP training with Food Surety.  The one day course was via zoom and was surprisingly hands on with breakout rooms and working through examples. It has helped reflecting on all potential fraud types across the entire supply chain and appropriate mitigations. I highly recommend it.
