“I contacted Oscar Camacho in the middle of May 2016 and explained that our company had to get our SQF certification by July 1st. Oscar explained that to prepare for the certification process normally takes 6 months. But after explaining our situation that we would lose a major client, Oscar agreed to help us through the process. It was truly an eye opener how unprepared we were after the initial walk through and receiving 173 non conformances. Oscar was there for us every step of the way and was more than happy to answer all my calls to answer my questions. After working hard for 6 consecutive weeks we had our audit on July 1st. Unfortunately, Oscar couldn’t be there with me the 2 days of the audit due to prior commitments, but he checked up on me constantly to see how we were progressing. By the end of day 2 of the audit we received a score of excellence 97 points with only 3 minor non conformances. We couldn’t have done it without Oscar Camacho.”
To start, it was a very nice town and community were class was held. Then, coming to your classes with a warmth welcome and arranging meals for us was very generous of you and the program. What I value the most was the enrichment of the knowledge you presented and transmitted to everyone in the class. All of our questions were just answer and a few were just presented with resources. Wonderful.
Know let me tell you what I personally was nutrient about the course. The importance of a plan, should be to prevent anyone from getting ill when consuming our distributed product, we Patagonia Foods have taken it serious know. It just starts with us been motivated and do our diligence with following our given guidelines. Good Manufacture Practices on the facilities we buy products from, reviewing if they are complying with the Preventive Controls, follow procedures on Allergens, Foodborne Pathogens, Critical Limits and what is been done on Hazard Analysis and their preventive controls. For us to follow up with every provider that we work with is essential and mandatory. We will strength up our Recall Procedure and strength up our structure protocol. Continue with more exercise on mock recall inviting our providers and our clients to participate.
Our purpose is to sell safe and delicious foods to our clients and we all are responsible for getting it done.
Thank you for the resources, tools and knowledge you shared with all the attendees.
Best regards Oscar."
