Once you are confident that your food safety plan is ready to go, and you have performed a self-audit, consider scheduling an FSC pre-assessment. During this mock-audit, an inspector will visit your farm or facility and score you as they would during a real audit. A pre-assessment can help you prepare for your audit, expose any weaknesses in your plan, and give you an idea of what to expect beforehand.

How much does a pre-assessment cost?

Pre-assessments run lower in cost than official audits, but still vary based on the size, type, and complexity of the operation. Contact for a pre-assessment quote.
