The Safe Quality Food (SQF) Certification program consists of Level 1 – Food Safety Fundamentals, Level 2 – Food Safety Plan and Level 3 – Food Quality Plan.
This course builds upon the structure developed in the creation of a Food Safety Plan. Participants will learn the food quality requirements of Level 3 Certification based upon the SQF Code Module 2 elements, with a focus on those applicable in their environment. Following the SQF Code Module 2 element sequence in a workshop format, the course investigates the food quality plan requirements, if any, of each element. Requirements are explained, related to the participants’ environment, and examples are developed.
The course uses templates for document design and teaches participants a methodology for identifying areas of food quality risk, and then planning and implementing steps for the mitigation of the identified risk.
Participants will gain an understanding of Food Quality requirements and will be able to develop and document a Food Quality Plan complying with SQF Level 3 requirements.
