What to Look for in a Food Safety Certification Company
If you are a rancher, farmer or packinghouse manager in California seeking food safety certification, it’s essential to find an auditing agency that fits your needs. As a first time pursuit into the food safety auditing world, it’s hard to fully understand what you should be aware of. Here are some recommended qualities to look for in a food safety certification company:
Customer Service/Ease of certification
Customer service should be a top priority. There are many auditing agencies to choose from who perform similar/same audits, but how they provide their service is what makes them all different. Do they provide you with the necessary tools and resources needed to properly implement your food safety plan on site? Your auditing agency should be able to provide you with checklists and helpful guides on how to get started, which is essential when preparing for your first audit- you shouldn’t be left in the dark. Is the agency easy to get a hold of to any questions that you may have? It’s not uncommon to find yourself confused and frustrated when tackling food safety, make sure your agency can quickly answer any/all your questions to help you stay on track.
