The Food Quality Alliance (FQA) was created to provide food industry clients with a simpler, more cost effective way to access and manage a broad array of food safety and quality services. Founded and administered by the Global ID Group of companies, the Food Quality Alliance (FQA) is a consortium of industry-leading, independent providers of food safety and quality certification, testing and educational services. Alliance members work cooperatively to provide clients an integrated source of over 30 essential services. Sourcing these services through the FQA provides clients with many benefits:
Access to premium quality services at favorable prices. Alliance members were carefully selected on the basis of their reputation for providing only the highest quality service at competitive prices.
Savings of time and money with combined inspections: FQA members are cooperating to provide multi-service training to their facility inspectors in order to reduce the number of inspection visits that Alliance clients will need each year, saving you time and money.
Assistance in the bid process: The FQA’s staff will connect you with the right specialist at each service provider and make sure you get all the information you need in order to make an informed decision about which programs are right for your company.
Bundling and/or transfer discounts: Ask about special pricing incentives that may be available by bundling your food safety and quality services with the Food Quality Alliance.
