You need Food Safety University

Last fall, I had a client come to me with a jubilant look on her face. She’d just gotten back her pre-audit report. 


I looked at it, thinking it was going to be awesome.


It wasn’t. She’d read it wrong. They’d had minor finding is every.single.category and document they had been audited on. She said “But Dr. P...they are only MINOR findings right?”

Wrong. Get enough “minors” and you fail. 


She had so many, the audit company wouldn’t even book an onsite visit. But that wasn’t even the worst of it. She had to call up her potential new distributor account and tell them they wouldn't have an audit certificate by December. They said...thanks but no thanks. Call us when you have the audit.

As you can guess, that was devastating to that manager. See, she had promised she knew what she was doing, and she didn’t. And now she was in real trouble. No audit, no new account, no new sales...and no way to pay for the fat salary she was getting. Panic time. And in her panic...that manager RAN. Left the job, left the audit unresolved, left the sales hanging. Her boss then called me frantic asking what to do.

Enter Food Safety University

The plan was simple…

  1. Create a food safety plan that meets the audit standards.
  2. Create an action plan for the findings on the pre-audit
  3. Submit corrective actions on the pre-audit
  4. Schedule the new audit
  5. Pass

It was a great plan...the problem was that all the manager’s documents were all over the place. So, we patiently incorporated them into the suite of documents and made a truly great food safety plan. When it was done, we looked at it with a sense of proud accomplishment. We had done it.

The audit day finally came...everything was set and we all held our breath. As the day dragged, and nothing terrible happened, we realized that we did it. We were going to pass the audit and re-engage the distributor and we’d massively grow the business, in that quarter. Not next year...NOW.
