I have been in IFSQN over 20 years in different food companies and positions.  In the last 5 years I left 3 companies due to food fraud, wanting me to do 'stubby pencil' work for an audit". I was also slandered when an owner told the USDA that I have a habit of filing documents in the wrong file and that a temporary label request was good to go.  It was forged and the inspector knew it.

 

Presently I do contractor work helping companies in GFSI audits, SQF, BRC or going for Organic re-certification.  Many companies confuse Food Defense and Food Security.  All companies lack a Food Safety Culture.

 

I hope I can contribute to the site with over 35 years in food from dairy, ice cream,yogurt, low acid canning, frozen dairy cakes, spices, RTE salads, slaughter, fully processed meat, seafood and fresh produce processing.

 

Thank you for the opportunity to be in this forum.

Welcome back.

Many companies confuse Food Defense and Food Security.

 

Ok, I'll bite. What do you consider food security?

Not all companies "lack a food safety culture". It may be poor or near-non-existent, but it's there.


Providing solutions for food manufacturing companies in achieving regulatory compliance, GFSI standard implementation, environmental monitoring solutions, and HACCP development.
