Ray Haddad
I am the Trainer & Managing Director at Food Surety Limited, I have worked in the food industry in quality assurance roles, auditing, consulting, training, instructional design, workplace 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'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.
