About GMP - cGMP

The GMP/ cGMP regulations for drugs (pharmaceuticals even OTC products) contain minimum requirements for the methods, facilities, and controls used in the manufacturing, processing, and packing of a product. The regulations require that manufacturers, processors, and packagers of drugs, medical devices, some specialty foods such as medical foods, and blood take proactive steps to ensure that a product is safe for use and that it has the ingredients and strength it claims to have. The "c" stands for "current," reminding manufacturers that they must employ technologies and systems which are up-to-date in order to comply with the regulations.

Why take SQF training?

Today’s consumers are more educated on the food they are providing their families and requiring increased food safety assurance, which increases demand for the retailers and service providers to request suppliers to provide verifiable proof that robust food safety control systems have been effectively implemented.

The SQF systems provide assurance to end customers that the food produced, prepared and handled by the food supplier is of the highest possible standards.

SQF Code Edition 9.0 is the international food safety standard preferred by many of the world's leading retailers and food service companies, and is recognized under the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

Who Should Attend?

For Employees, the SQF certificate training is absolutely of interest to individuals who are preparing to meet the SQF Practitioner requirements as defined in the SQF Code, Edition 9.0, who desire a detailed knowledge base for the successful implementation and maintenance of the SQF systems, or who wish to step into the promising food industry.

For Food Suppliers, the training course will equip your employees with SQF knowledge; and your company achieving SQF certification provides assurance that your products retain a high degree of acceptance in the market.
