Hello All,


I failed to introduce myself when I first joined last week, so I thought I would take the opportunity now. My education is as dairy scientist and half my career was spent in dairy food safety, QA/QC. I also spent five years as a 3rd party GMP aditor. My experience as a food safety and quality manager at various facilities includes both USDA, FDA, coffee, tea, cultured and non-cultured dairy products, beer, bakery, choolate, meat and poultry. I have no experience yet with any of the GFSI benchmarked schemea, but hope to make that the next big adventure.

Hello Xylough, thanks for taking the time to introduce yourself.  It looks as though you have a considerable breadth and depth of knowledge that will be an asset to members.  In return I'm sure they will help you get up to speed on GFSI.

Welcome xylough :welcome:


Why would you want to leave QA for tea. I've heard tea is extremely easy to deal with on the quality side at least.
