Companies could hire consultants and software, but one wrong move, and you could spend more than you needed to and waste time. This could result in a loss of customers and business. Choosing the right consultant and software can be stressful and cost you thousands of dollars.
What to do? Choose your consultant first and ask about digital solutions. Test the consultant on your specific products and the ins and outs of processing/distribution. Make sure they are using the commonsense approach and know the risk assessments that should be done to help you save time and money.
According to SQFI , Consultants serve as the link between SQFI and SQF Certified Sites by helping them achieve SQF food safety or quality certification.
Consultants must be registered by SQFI and are hired by sites to help develop, implement, verify, and maintain their SQF Programs. The role of the SQF Consultant is to provide guidance to sites seeking certification without managing the sites SQF Program.
SQF Consultants must maintain all standards of client focus, integrity, competency, professionalism and accountability outlined in the Criteria for SQF Consultants and the SQF Consultant Code of Conduct.
Also, check your consultant’s history and software reputation. This is one way to measure if you are going in the right direction. Saving money on a consultant and software could double your time frame and cost you twice as much downstream. Passing your audit the first time is key! We tell our customers at GFSC Group and Food Safety Plus a good analogy is like saving on cheap labor and materials in your house, it will cost you more later.
