Gap Assessment

Whether you’re just beginning the certification process or you’ve significantly changed your food safety management system since your last audit, a Gap Assessment will help you bridge the gaps between your current food safety management system and a certification-level system. A Gap Assessment is also useful when a new version of a Standard is released or in between audits to keep your site audit ready.

A Partnership

A Gap Assessment will evaluate your established procedures, programs, and documentation to measure how well your food safety programs align with your selected certification standard requirements. It’s so much more than a mock audit. It’s also a consulting tool that offers the best possible training customized to your facility and products. We’ll help you discover areas for improvement so corrections can be made before your certification auditor arrives, saving you the headache and fear of receiving non-conformances during your actual audit.

The detailed written report you’ll receive identifies areas of non-compliance as well as opportunities for improvement to help you resolve shortfalls and prepare your facility for an audit.
