SQF New Version 7

The SQF Program has, until the Version 7 Code update, offered two standards based on the type of food supplier: The SQF 1000 Code for primary producers and growers (GAP; now in the Pre-Farm Gate module) and the SQF 2000 Code for the manufacturing, processing and distribution sectors (GMP; now in the Post-Farm Gate module). Our trainings are mainly for the Post-Farm Gate module, along with the Core Requirement modules.

SQF - Meeting consumer demand for increased food safety assurances through the chain...

The SQF (Safe Quality Food) Program is a food safety and quality certification program, and management system, designed to meet the needs of buyers and suppliers worldwide. 

Who should attend?

* SQF In-house Practitioners and Consultants responsible for designing, implementing and maintaining the company’s SQF Systems
* Owners and company leaders wanting in-depth knowledge of the SQF program
* Supporting employees – managers and others overseeing the processes

Training goals:
• To provide an understanding of SQF principles, activities and how the program fits into The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)
• To gather information on the resources required for development, implementation and maintenance of the program for positive ROI and workforce improvements.
• To learn best practices to document & verify results, and to prepare for audits.
• To recognize that the investment in certification has long-range benefits - many SQF-certified suppliers have gained greater recognition in the marketplace, fewer complaints and returns, reduced risk, less waste due to non-conforming product, and increased productivity.

Fees include: training, material binder, lunch and certificate* - $575 - $645 depending on registration date and number of attendees.

* Test & Certificate -  the knowledge to be an SQF inhouse Practioner or Consultant is covered in this course and a Certificate of Completion is awarded (with the SQF Training Center logo and SCS logo).   Taking the test is optional; it is common for companies to want employees (especially the company appointed Practioner) to take the test.  It can be purchased ($75) on the SQF website.  After passing, an additional certificate is given – either certificate is useful to show to an auditor or client.   You will find more details on the SQF website  

We can provide an invoice if requested
