I am curious about this and wanted to get some insight...

What percentage of your company's income is budgeted towards food safety? What would you say is the ideal percentage?

Hi,  Redbudke.

 

Our budget is combined for food safety and quality.  Having to work at MNC, as a Food safety professional, I have to ensure that food safety projects (be it new equipment or process change) must be proposed with all the proper justification and complete documentation to ensure that it will be approved in the head office (This is for continual improvement while still compliant with any of the existing regulations). Should there be "unforeseen changes" along the course of the year, "unforeseen budget is also available". Also part of the proposal are all the training needed. I also ensure that we have the budget to be enrolled in the training be it internally or externally.

 

There is really no fixed percentage of the budget as it will be dependent on how mature the organization is in terms of food safety.

Wish I had an answer like it was stated above food safety is part of the overall quality program and its budget.  With only myself in the food safety area the rest of the staff (12) are all quality, it makes it difficult to provide an answer.  Ongoing training is provided to all staff during orientation and yearly refreshers, plus I will try and attend 1 or 2 trainings every year. In short I would say it is pretty minimal.

I said I Don't Know because I'm not privy to the bottom line numbers.
That being said, I don't really have a budget.

I guess I could ask for forgiveness instead of asking for permission...but that's the way it usually works.
