Food Safety


Food Safety

A wider reaching global supply chain exposes our food—and those companies within the food supply chain—to increased risk. Every company that produces, handles, or distributes food-grade products/ingredients has an obligation to its customers to provide safe and quality food. KTL helps companies manage operational risks, achieve food safety regulatory and certification standard requirements, and realize sustained business value.

Led by a team of senior consultants, our food safety experts average over 15 years of hands-on experience developing and implementing food safety and quality assurance (FSQA) programs and driving certification and compliance initiatives for companies across the global food supply chain. We understand the food industry and the increasingly complex world in which companies operate.

Our industry experts:

  • Provide an in-depth understanding of food safety regulatory requirements, including the Food and Drug Administration’s Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA), Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), and U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) requirements
  • Establish strategies to assist companies in fulfilling the certification requirements of the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI)-benchmarked standards (i.e., FSSC 22000, IFS, SQF, BRCGS)
  • Develop integrated food safety management systems (FSMS) to more efficiently manage certification and compliance obligations
  • Hold a number of recognized industry certifications and credentials, including HACCP certified; Seafood HACCP certified; Lean Six Sigma certified; certified ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 Internal Auditor; certified FSSC 22000 Lead Auditor; GFSI certified for FSSC 22000, BRC, and SQF; FDA – Food Safety and Preventive Controls for Human Food certified; FSPCA PCQI and FSVP Lead Instructor.

And our capabilities and expertise go well beyond food safety compliance and certification. We work with organizations to structure and implement comprehensive solutions that allow them to better manage their food safety risks; operate more reliably; and realize sustainable and profitable growth.
