The food and beverage manufacturing industry requires employees at every level of their supply chain to hold the proper training and certifications. From the farm field to the dinner table, stringent requirements are placed by governing bodies like the Food and Drug Administration to ensure that whatever you consume is safe to eat any meal of the day. 

Delivering a quality food product starts with developing quality training for everyone involved in its manufacturing. Before the latest snack hits the shelves of supermarkets, it must go through rounds of quality assurance from concept to production. Those handling the production of food at all levels from food scientists to food plant processors and even conveyor belt technicians need to be cleared for safety and quality assurance. Common certification for professionals in the food production industry include the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) and Safe Quality Food (SQF) certification. 

With hundreds and perhaps even thousands of employees in a food company’s production line it can seem like a challenge to get everyone certified for approved training. Typically, food companies will have their internal L&D team organize a schedule with a list of courses for employees to sign up for training. The main issue with relying on a single spreadsheet for scheduling training for employee safety or quality assurance training is that it proves to be tedious (and confusing) for both your back-office team and your employees. Registrations for training tend to get mixed up and sometimes there’s not a single instructor available to train your next online course. Talk about having a lot on your plate!

Thankfully there’s a solution to wipe your plate clean. With Training Orchestra’s training management system, scheduling required training for the food and beverage industry just became a piece of cake. Without the use of multiple spreadsheets, it’s the only TMS that allows you to manage all aspects of your food and beverage training operation – all in one portal.

Everything was so manual before Training Orchestra. Our teams were working 80 hours per week, just to support our training and minimal growth. Now, everyone is at 40 hours per week, and we have doubled the amount of training that we do! I can’t even express the amount of gratitude I have for the automation generated by Training Orchestra for our instructor-led and virtual instructor-led training programs.
