Thank you for the training, I definitely have a different perspective from the maintenance side of things. I learned that not only sanitation but everyone has a responsibility to do it the right way in every aspect.John Brown, Maintenance Trainer, Martin’s Famous Pastry Shoppe, Inc
Thank you so much. I enjoyed the training and working with your team. I have 15 years of experience in Sanitation so none of this was really “new” to me, however, we all get a little complacent over time and sometimes lose sight of the big picture. This training was great for bringing things back to the front of my mind and refreshing my perspective on effective sanitation!Trevor Manring, Corporate Sanitarian, Sugar Creek
The hands-on Wet and Dry cleaning workshops were fantastic to support the learning and networking experience. Having several Food Industry ‘Veterans’ in the room maximizes this learning.Guy Wittens, Food Safety Department Manager, Kellogg Company
The training was stellar, and being a relative newbie to the industry, it was a bit daunting at first. But, the instructors were great in explaining things and the people in the class were outstanding in dragging me along as I asked a million questions. My boss seems rather pleased with what I learned and he is looking at getting more of my colleagues into this class. I appreciate your efforts in putting on this great training!Mark Schlickman, Corporate Account Manager, Supply Sanitation Systems
There are other notes that I will take away from the training session, but SSOP development and implementation is the main one I'm planning to implement across our seven plants. Overall, this training was one of my favorites. I am a hands-on learner. I liked how there was classroom sessions prior to getting out and actually applying what we learned in the classroom previous to the breakout sessions, thank-you!Curt Palmer, Corporate QA Engineer Sanitarian , Jennie-O Turkey Store
Your seminar was probably the best one I ever went to and I am still using the materials for continuous improvements in our sanitation world here.Kim Helms, Sanitation Supervisor, McCain Foods
