Being a QA manager at a Food company is a comprehensive, knowledge-intensive job. On the one hand, you must be constantly up to date with the latest legislation and quality standards, on the other hand, it is your task to ensure that the HACCP study is known throughout the company and that the control measures are followed up on a daily basis. Recipe changes often lead to new ingredient declarations, whereby it is also important that this information is included on the label of the relevant product when working according to the new recipe.

With our Food Safety Compliance for QA managers training we go back to the basics, the foundation to properly fulfil the complex function of QA manager, now and in the future, from a unique management perspective. Tools are offered that are essential for every Food company. How can I set up the company in such a way that all legal requirements and quality standards can be met in real-time?

Most Food companies are BRC, IFS or FSSC22000 certified. What are the differences and similarities between these standards?

As a company, can you cancel the audit yourself if you want to? Based on more than 1000 audits, knowledge is transferred about how you can demonstrably meet quality standards.
