  • Implementing SQF Systems - Manufacturing

    Many food manufacturing businesses are using the SQF Food Safety Code to mitigate food safety hazards, run their businesses and meet buyer requirements. The Code requires each business have a qualified, designated SQF Practitioner and back-ups. Ecolab is an officially licensed SQF training center allowed to teach the class which will qualify the SQF Practitioner. On completion of the 2-day course will receive an Ecolab certificate and a free voucher to take the online SQF exam. If participants then successfully pass the online SQF exam (voucher included!), they get an additional SQF Practitioner certificate from the SQF Institute and are qualified to become the site’s SQF Practitioner. The credential meets the needs for current employment as well as for those seeking to become more marketable in the workplace where more and more companies are seeking help with SQF and other GFSI-recognized certification programs. Briefly, participants will learn: • The concepts of quality management and customer relationships • The basic concepts of the SQF Program and requirements of the SQF Food Safety Code • How to develop a HACCP-based, SQF-compliant food safety plan • The process for auditing and certifying SQF Programs
