TESTIMONIALS

ASC Consultants undertook a food safety consultancy assignment at our pineapple processing facility and assisted us in achieving an A Grade in our BRC Audit for two years in a row.
They carried out a full review of the current systems and standards, providing recommendations, support and training to significantly improve our Food Safety Management System.
Their dedication to go the extra mile at any given time is commendable, always making us feel that our requests are priority. We experience ASC Consultants as a highly competent Food Safety consultancy firm with all the expertise and experience to successfully implement Food Safety Management System. They deliver cost effective and practical solutions. A big thumbs up for the ASC Consultants team.

In my previous position as Laboratory Supervisor for Chicory SA (Pty) Ltd (01 January 2017 – 31 January 2020), I worked extensively with ASC Consultants in ensuring that our company was compliant with the various FMCG regulations including FSCC 22000.
During the same period, I also received number of expert training from ASC Consultants and became competent in the following to mention few: Compile HACCP Study (NQF Level 4), Internal and Supplier Auditing Practices (NQF Level 4), British Retail Consortium (BRC) Issue 8 Transition and Food Safety System Certification (FSSC) 22000.
In my opinion, ASC Consultants are among the best Food Safety Consultants in the province and country at large. They are dedicated, patient and are always prepared to go the extra mile to ensure that their customers are satisfied. Their strong work ethic is second to none.
Based on my professional experience with ASC Consultants, I can unreservedly recommend them to anyone looking for world-class professional Food Safety and Quality services.

ASC Consultants has been consulting for Laborie Foods for a number of years and has assisted us with the implementation of a world class Food Safety Management System.
We are currently in the process of upgrading our current FSMS to FSSC 22000 with the assistance of ASC Consultants, which we hope to achieve before the end of 2020.
I highly recommend ASC Consultants to any company in the Food Industry.

I did my ISO 22000: 2018 course with ASC Consultants during one of the most challenging times that the world is currently facing and yet not even a single moment did I feel unsafe. The environment was safe and conducive for learning; the course information was well outlined and easy to understand. Mr Nkosi has excellent knowledge in all aspects of food safety and has with great patience carried over his knowledge to his students. I felt at ease in class and questions were encouraged throughout the course. Assessments were fair, and workplace assessments gave you the chance to implement the information gained. Our company also made use of ASC Consultants for our internal audits. The auditors are qualified and didn’t hesitate to give a clear reflection of where our weaknesses and strengths lay.
The ASC Consultants auditors also assisted me to close out findings and thoroughly prepare for our annual audits. Advise was always just a phone call away even in panicking moments and sometimes early mornings. The administrative staff are patient and well organised. Julliette and Rika endured tedious emails and loads of questions without losing their patience. I have since moved on from doing food safety, but all the knowledge gained has placed me in a very advantageous position. I would gladly recommend ASC Consultants to anyone who needs to be a cut above the rest when it comes to food safety, whether it is training, auditing or just consulting.
