Our Process

Step 1: Food Safety Gap Assessment

We run a gap assessment, reviewing the program deficiency and the extent of food safety program development required to meet both regulatory and third-party audit requirements.

Step 2: HACCP Plan Development

We assist to build food safety plan based on CODEX principles for HACCP development including building a food safety team. We trained the food safety team and assist in developing a detailed HACCP plan, encompassing input from the HACCP team.
