January 12th, 2015

AUSTIN, Texas — Alchemy, the global leader of innovative solutions that help food companies drive safety and productivity, was honored by the Safe Quality Food Institute with the ‘SQF Training Center of the Year’ award. Alchemy is the only company that provides the “Implementing SQF Systems” course and exam online saving participants valuable time and expenses.

The Alchemy SQF certification program is available 24/7 allowing learners to prepare for the exam at their own pace and at their own convenience. In some cases, candidates may complete the program in just a day. Following course completion candidates have up to three chances to finish the timed exam to complete the certification process.

“The SQFI Training Center of the Year distinction recognizes a licensed SQF training center that contributes significantly to achieving the SQF mission and supporting SQF stakeholders in implementing sound food safety and quality practices. Alchemy excels at this, and that is why the recognition is well deserved,” says Robert Garfield, Vice President of SQFI.

“The Training Center of the Year award is a source of great pride to our organization”

In addition, Alchemy supports SQF and the food industry through a variety of other activities. Alchemy’s subject matter experts have served on SQF’s Technical Advisory Committee and Conference Committee. Alchemy also partners with SQF to offer educational webinars on audit readiness, food safety, and compliance. The company also plays a role at SQF conferences, lending support as sponsors and speakers.

Alchemy CEO Jeff Eastman says, “The Training Center of the Year award is a source of great pride to our organization. We are glad to make SQF certification accessible to food industry professionals who may not otherwise have the time or resources they need to achieve certification.”
