Why do I say so?
The trainer is very knowledgeable and the training is tailored to the audience.
The training is thought provoking and incredibly well built.
In the current era, I must say, I found the best remote classroom setup.
Smooth, engaging, well supported.
I’d recommend any professionals working in the food safety industry to book your training today.
And I’d say this course should be a staple in a food professional development, beyond any specific requirement brought by a specific Standard’s requirements.”

Since 2007, I've had 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 thousands of 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' experiences of light bulb moments and breakthroughs in their thinking. I enjoy supporting them protecting food for all.
Understanding and measure food safety culture at your workplace and actively enhancing it will reduce, errors, cost and food waste, will improve moral, employee engagement and retention, all sounds good right.
Its not about another course, or another action plan, its about practical and SMART goals and actions that will help you to get to a sustainable positive food safety culture. This is what is on offer in this official BRCGS course. It suits sites certified to other Global Good Safety Initiative GFSI certification programmes too.
Ray (Course facilitator) was easily the most competent and engaged facilitator that I have seen on not only Zoom but Food Safety. The course meet all expectations and it had a decent assessment at the end of it (harder than normal but enjoyed it) Ray even gave his time to discuss the assessment and was very receptive to feedback.
