For long term support, Quality Associates focuses on recruiting the right people. Specialist recruiters work with us to identify talent in the food industry. Specific traits that we look for are:

  1. Attitude – can do, supportive, engaging
  2. Skills – food processing, systems, legal
  3. Experience – range of products & sites, retail exposure
  4. Work Style – hands-on, production floor & office

For increasing capacity, one or two days a week, Quality Associates utilises our current experienced consultants to seamlessly integrate into your team.

The additional value of Quality Associates lies in us ensuring the continued development of our people to stay up-to-date in their skills through in-house courses such as HACCP, Internal Food Safety Auditor and Food Labelling.
