Good morning Ryanmaximo -
As Zanorias mentioned above - two routes for you to consider.
If your company wants you to DIY, the best route would be for you to have a consultant do what is known as an FSSC 22000 consulting gap analysis to see where you are right now in respect to food safety management system documentation, condition of facility, etc. and then get the IFSQN development package and DIY your own system, have an FSSC 22000 Auditor come in to do a pre-audit review and inspection and then go for your official certifying body audit. That's at base, so to speak, obviously a bit more involved as there are several courses you should take to help you get a better handle on working in the food sector as well as introduction/prep courses for your chosen GFSI scheme.
The other route (and if capital resources are available for it) is to have a consultant come in and do the gap first and then working in conjunction with you and yours co-develop your system with you and go from there.
By the way, when I say "come in" that is one route to take, there are consultants that are more than capable of doing their work entirely off site without ever stepping inside your front door.
