Program Description

SQFI has developed the Fundamentals Program for Food Manufacturing for small- and medium-sized suppliers who don’t yet have a robust food safety management program in place or want to be sure their existing program meets the expectations of retailers.

Participants of the Implementing SQF Fundamentals Code will be guided through an exploration of the components of seven foundational programs that, along with their food safety plan, make up the SQF Fundamentals Code: product specifications, facility construction and maintenance, sanitation, personal hygiene and cross-contamination, approved suppliers, product identification and traceability and the internal audit plan.

This 2-day course uses a learner-centered approach to engage attendees and allow them to take ownership of their learning.

Course prerequisites:

Those individuals who have not completed a HACCP or PCQI class will not be at disadvantage; however, it is understood that development of either plan is addressed through a separate course.

Throughout this course, learners will work in teams to complete several practical activities using a product selected by the group. Attendees are encouraged to bring redacted copies of their own documents, such as supplier lists, ingredients and process flow charts to immediately apply the tools and techniques discussed in class. Attendees who are not yet manufacturing product can work alongside their team mates using the product selected by their group.
