Product Description

Get a Roadmap To Advance Your Preparation in Successful SQF Implementation!


In today’s global marketplace, consumers demand excellence and because of this expectation, competitive advantage must be maintained. Consumers are making decisions for safe food with their pocketbooks – and your customers are feeling the PRESSURE!

So they turn to their Supply Chain Network – which is the key area for your customers to decide your financial future. But if they choose you, what is it that you have to offer? And what are they mandating from you in return?

Enter in Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) scheme certification – the current GOLD standard in industry, a “guarantee” that your firm has the right plans and programs in place to keep food safe, and decrease their risk. But this often creates new questions for you such as:

  • Will certification ensure that our business is successful?
  • Will SQF certification meet the food safety demands of my customers?
  • How much will this cost us, and is it worth it?
  • Where (and when) do we even start?

This training session by expert speaker, Valerie Scheidt, MBA, CP-FS, will simplify the SQF scheme certification process, explain the role of a SQF practitioner, and how this individual aligns with the Qualified Individual for PC rules. Valerie will provide you with a roadmap for successful preparation and improving your firm’s training infrastructure for key programs.  You will get tips that are specifically created for immediate implementation to advance your preparation in SQF implementation. This program is perfect for any business trying to understand requirements and develop a strategy for gaining momentum or buy-in.
