My name is Eric and I am new to the forum. I am a QMS Manager at a small to mid size Ice cream manufacturer and distributor in Ontario. We are in the midst of making the jump from basic CFIA requirements to HACCP and SQF. I am finding the costs for consulting and training to be fairly high. We have an old Pre req system and a very basic HACCP plan that both need some work. We have some SOP's and have been working on the system. Basically I am looking to see if these costs are reasonable. We have been quoted $16000 for training of SQF,HACCP, Internal Auditor and GMP's as well as food defense and corrective actions. This is on site training totaling ten days which seems fairly reasonable. Also there is good funding for training. Up to 83% so I am good with this one. We have also been quoted 10 onsite and 10 offsite days of consulting to assist us with the creation and implementation of the HACCP and SQF system. This is a tougher sell for my boss but I think it may be required.These 20 consulting days come in at $26200 and there seems to be no funding for consulting. So long story short do these figures seem reasonable? Any guidance is appreciated.
