We provide strategic food safety consulting. Our goal is to teach you how to assess and manage food safety risks, locate and interpret the resources to support your approach to food safety, and build the capacity and confidence within your team to address and prevent food safety issues. And if things go wrong, we are here to provide food safety crisis support.

Our depth of experience and expertise means we work efficiently to keep overall fees reasonable. Crisis work is generally billed hourly. Contact us to discuss project fees.
