Don’t you think it’s time we cut the nonsense from food safety and quality management?

Inhibitors of progress in food safety and quality assurance:
  • The wasteful engagement in the tricks and travesty of mere compliance.
  • Enormous stress from externally imposed and generic rules for food safety management;
  • Overload of theoretical solutions that do not directly address the unique situations faced by individual establishments;
  • Redundancies running rampant with the enforcement of imaginary and resource-draining solutions where there are no problems, while real problems go unnoticed;
  • Creating enmity among parties that need to engage in collaborative efforts;
  • Widespread anxiety, stress and burn-out among operation systems managers due to unreasonable demands from those who should provide problem-solving support;
  • The adoption of supplier intimidation tactics where there should be productive inspiration;
  • The imposition of pre-set draconian standards by external parties that hinder innovative thinking among food safety system managers;
  • The propagation of superficiality through superficial outside party certification programs;
  • The spreading of a false sense of security through fabricated success measurement schemes;
Let's cut the nonsense. Let's stop the burning. 

The world needs the “show-me-the-money”style of consumer protection with SSQA.
