“Cathy was recommended to us as an excellent Food Safety Consultant that could assist us in achieving SQF II certification. From the first phone call to the last she proved to be an invaluable resource to building our food safety management system. Cathy is knowledgeable, professional and a pleasure to work with. She understood our food safety goals and provided a high quality roadmap to achieving and exceeding our defined goals. I highly recommend Cathy Crawford’s consulting services if you’re serious about implementing and sustaining a high quality food safety management system.” Dan McCullough/ Dandrea Produce

“Cathy Crawford is an excellent trainer, auditor and consultant. She provides a wealth of knowledge from her years in the food industry. When I was at Sara Lee we hired Cathy as a consultant/trainer and she provided HACCP training to our bakery. She did an excellent job explaining HACCP and SQF guidelines to our team at the bakery. Cathy has a diverse knowledge of the food industry and food manufacturing processes. Cathy is dedicated to what she does and it shows through her work!” Leigh-Ann Kidney / Quality Assurance and Food Safety Manager / Sonic Drive-In  

 

“The insight and guidance you offered, both for myself as a new SQF
Practitioner and for our SCK’s HACCP team, proved invaluable. Although we have an older facility not originally designed for food manufacturing, we were able to meet all building code requirements with your help. From assistance with establishing the Prerequisite programs and hazard analysis to final facility audit input, your continued support was appreciated. Your overall training services were instrumental for our success!”  Abbie Yant / QA Manager /  Stan Strickland / owner / Savannah’s Candy Kitchen

 

“When we decided to become SQF certified we knew we had many
challenges. We are a small company and we are housed in an old dairy barn which is not exactly state of the art. We needed help and were fortunate to find Cathy Crawford. She guided us through the process and helped us identify the areas in our physical plant, our documentation and our record keeping where our efforts to improve would have the biggest impact. She seemed to become one of us – with just as much riding on the results of our audit.  I highly recommend Cathy for any company facing obstacles to becoming GFSI certified.”  Melynda Towsley / Manager /Jonathan Sprouts

 

“Our company has been very pleased and satisfied with the consulting services provided by Cathy. Her services, especially assistance in developing written procedures, enabled us to achieve our goal of becoming SQF Level 2 certified. Cathy has always performed in a professional manner and has been a pleasure to work with. Her knowledge is a valuable asset to any company and I highly recommend her consulting services.”  Joli McQuaig / Dixie Egg Company

 

“Cathy Crawford was great to work with, full of creative ideas, lots of great contacts when we needed to get advice on certain issues. She was awesome at quickly responding to my questions. She completed both a mock desk & site audit for us. She was very detailed & it made the real audit seem like a breeze. She also led an on-site training for us that was tailored to our needs & it was well received.  It was overwhelming to me at first but Cathy really coached me through it.”  StephanieFaucetta / Quality Manager / Elmer Candy Company

 

“Cathy – Just want to say thanks again for the HACCP and SQF training presented by yourself and Dan Lafontaine this past week.  Your program was very well organized and presented in such a way that promoted discussion and a high level learning from those attending.”

“We just completed a two day  audit for BRC Version 6.  The transition from version 5 to Version 6 was a real challenge and involved a lot of preparation.  It would have been impossible to get through without the guidance of Cathy. With her help, we were able to pull out of the new code all the changes that we needed for the upgrade of our program.  Understanding code an rewriting programs is a tedious job.  Cathy’s great personality, and 24/7 availability with the many email questions sent her way, made the process almost enjoyable!
Congratulations and Thanks to Cathy for the Grade A we received!!!”

“The HACCP video book was a great training tool for our company’s HACCP team. The information was concise and to the point. The information was well presented and interesting. Our HACCP team learned a lot from the video session. It helped us to accomplish our training objectives and we feel more comfortable developing and evaluating our HACCP program.”
