Ray Haddad

I am the Trainer & Managing Director at Food Surety Limited, I too hate confusion and know what it feels like to worry you aren't doing the right thing!  I have worked in the food industry in quality assurance roles, auditing, consulting, training, instructional design, work place assessment and as an advisor in international food safety projects. This varied experience has given me depth of understanding of the needs and the pain points of the different parties in the food industry.

Since 2007, I have a proven track record conducting hundreds of audits including external 3rd party certification audits as an auditor/verifier recognised by the New Zealand Ministry for Primary Industries (MPI), in addition, I have trained more than 3750 food professionals from government agencies, NGOs, academia and businesses across the whole supply chain from farm to fork and across the different sectors,  not only in New Zealand but in Southeast Asia and Middle East.

I am driven by food professionals experiencing light-bulb moments and breakthroughs in their thinking and I enjoy supporting their journeys protecting food for all everywhere.


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.
