Warisco Consulting Services is a specialty firm that focuses on food safety management systems, food defense assessment, food fraud assessment, food hygiene pre-requisite programs and quality management systems (QMS). We also work on closely related management systems such as Environmental Management System (ISO 14001) and OH&S Management System (ISO 45001).
Warisco’s business model was conceived in the year 2014 but officially launched in 2017. The idea behind Warisco’s business model was catapulted into limelight by our Principal Consultant/Managing Director, Mr. Walter Ondiek. Beforehand, Walter had worked for a multinational, agri-business food firm, followed by a two-year break to pursue a Master’s degree in Food Safety and Toxicology in New Zealand; one of the developed nations with advanced food safety and quality management systems. During his study and stay in New Zealand, Walter had opportunity to conduct research in China. Out of his experience with African food value chains and the lessons learnt in New Zealand and China, Walter, together with a team of competent Consultants, decided to launch Warisco Consulting Services.
Our food safety, food defense and food fraud business models have been designed to offer high class services at competitive cost to clients of various sizes- small, medium and large-scale operators. We work with individuals, businesses, NGOs, registered groups or cooperatives that grow, process, manufacture, distribute, serve or trade in food and food ingredients.
Warisco offers training, auditing, documentation, advisory and implementation of food safety standards, food defense threat assessment, food fraud vulnerability assessment as well as implementation of relevant food safety pre-requisite programs. The food safety standards we work on include: HACCP, FSSC 22000, Global G.A.P, BRCGS and ISO 22000. In addition to the above standards, we also offer services in Good Laboratory Practices and requirements of ISO 17025. We have partnered with experienced service providers to support our clients in implementing pre-requisite programs; defined as basic conditions and activities that are necessary for creating hygienic environment for production of safe food. We are working towards expanding the list of our PRPs, which currently include: cleaning and sanitation, personnel hygiene, pest management, water and wastewater treatment. We are also strong on Global Food Safety Initiative’s (GFSI’s) Global Markets Programme.
Food Defense and Food Fraud Assessment
Food Defense and Food Fraud assessment tools are vital to food firms that wish to develop food defense and food fraud control plans with the aims of fulfilling legal obligations, customer requirements and/or streamlining their operational systems. Specifically, Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI) now require organizations that are already certified to any of the GFSI approved standard/schemes or those seeking certification in any of those schemes to perform food defense and food fraud vulnerability assessment and put in place appropriate control plans.
Our trainings are tailor made and categorized into ten groups to cater for the needs of various clients. These include over ten packages in food safety, over five packages in quality management system (ISO 9001:2015), over five packages in EMS (ISO 14001:2015) and OH&S ISO 45001:2018. We also conduct trainings on good laboratory practices, basic food hygiene principles, root cause analysis and risk based thinking.
Our Trainings are now being offered either through virtual platforms or conventional method (normal classroom type). Virtual trainings are live events conducted by a Tutor through Ms Teams, Zoom or Google meet.
Warisco’s Consultants have unrivalled expertise in food safety certification schemes such as HACCP, ISO 22000, FSSC 22000, Global G.A.P, BRCGS. Other standards include ISO 14001, ISO 45001 and ISO 9001:2015. We use our expertise to support the firms that plan to undergo or in the process of certification. Our support can come in various forms: Gap audit, trainings, documentation and/or advisory. On the Global Food Safety Initiative’s (GFSI’s) Global Markets Programme, we support small and medium companies who lack or have less sophisticated food safety systems or with limited resources to establish and sustain a sound food risk management plan. Through this programme, the businesses will be better positioned to access premium markets and manage food safety risks.
