Testimonials

"We learned everything we hoped to and more during our HACCP class with Chris.  He answered all our questions and walked us through the logic as many times as we needed to fully understand the “why” of HACCP.  …  We really couldn’t have picked a better class to help develop this most crucial part of our food safety plan! "
- Madison Maxwell, Director of Food Safety and Compliance, Roots Hummus, Asheville, NC
"Myself and my colleagues really benefited from the Preventive Controls Class that we just completed with Chris Reedy.  Chris took a very detailed and overwhelming three days of material and made it both interesting and informative.  As a relatively small producer, these new regulations seemed overwhelming at first but Chris was able to explain them in detail and relate them to real day-to-day experiences in a production environment.  He brought his past experience to the classroom that made a real difference.  We look forward to having Chris at our facility to do additional training with our entire staff.
