Enhancing Food Safety: Comprehensive Training Solutions

In response to growing regulatory and consumer demands, companies involved in the handling, processing, and storage of food products require skilled teams that can adhere to the increasingly strict industry standards.

WECERT offers a comprehensive selection of food safety training solutions, which encompass training in Food Safety Management Systems (FSMS) based on standards like ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, and BRCGS. Our offerings include Food Safety Internal Auditor training and Exemplar Global Certified Lead Auditor training, specifically designed for ISO 22000- and FSSC 22000-compliant FSMS.

We are also dedicated to providing training programs focused on the effective implementation and maintenance of essential practices such as Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), Vulnerability Assessment and Critical Control Points, as well as Good Manufacturing Practice systems. Additionally, we offer a variety of training courses aligned with the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act.

What Is The Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)

The GFSI is a collaboration between retailers, manufacturers and service providers within the supply chain, and coordinated by The Consumer Goods Forum. By benchmarking standards against each other to a set of criteria, GFSI aims to reduce the duplication of retailers asking for separate, yet nearly identical, audits.

Following a number of food safety related issues, there is no doubt for the need for food safety certification to enhance food safety, ensure consumer protection and to strengthen consumer confidence. The multiplicity of standards available, however, often made the process out of reach for many food suppliers. GFSI sets requirements for food safety schemes through a benchmarking process in order to improve cost efficiency throughout the food supply chain.

What this means for many companies is that a single food safety audit will be recognized by multiple retailers.
