Consultants

SQF Consultants serve as the link between SQFI and SQF Certified Sites by helping them achieve SQF food safety or quality certification.

Consultants must be registered by SQFI and are hired by sites to help develop, implement, verify, and maintain their SQF Programs. The role of the SQF Consultant is to provide guidance to sites seeking certification without managing the sites SQF Program.

SQF Consultants must maintain all standards of client focus, integrity, competency, professionalism and accountability outlined in the Criteria for SQF Consultants and the SQF Consultant Code of Conduct.
