ProCert Southern Africa hosted a FREE Webinar themed “What to Expect from your Unannounced Audit”. This being the first of a series of “Lunch Hour Sessions”, it was encouraging to see so many participants signed up. I suppose this is also an indication of the level of insecurity that most of us experience when it comes to unannounced audits.
This month we are talking about a topic that is as important to us as it to you – root cause analysis and corrective action. In fact, the theme for this month was triggered by numerous discussions about repeat external audit non-conformances, repeat internal non-conformances as well as thousands of missed opportunities to improve.
This month we are celebrating our 17th birthday. Of course, no birthday would be complete without cake so we have decided to run a special birthday promotion on our social media platforms where you (and possibly some of your friends) could be the lucky owner of a Mugg & Bean voucher to go and enjoy coffee and cake on us! Keep an eye out for our social media posts…
Hopefully you have had the privilege of relaxing and recharging for a few days over the festive season. If not, it means that you are one of those lucky people who get to go on holiday when everyone comes back to work. Either way, best wishes for the New Year, from our team to yours.
Is your current food safety and quality management system adding value? It may be worth our while to define the meaning of “value” in this context.
