Our Story

  

   Warisco Consulting Services is a specialty firm that focuses on quality management systems (QMS), food safety management systems, food defense assessment, food fraud assessment and food hygiene pre-requisite programs.We are also strong in Global Food Safety Initiative’s (GFSI’s) Global Markets Programme. 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.

  

   Warisco’s food safety programs target risks that are associated with unintentional food contamination while the food defense and food fraud programs are designed to assist food organizations or businesses to identify and mitigate  risks that are associated with intentional contamination and intentional deception. Our programs operate on a unique business model that target food safety challenges and the needs of participants in the food value chain; covering primary production, food manufacturing and processing, food distribution, food retail, and food preparation and consumption. 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, advisory and implementation of GFSI’s Global markets programme, 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, BRC 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.

   

   On the other hand, Warisco’s Quality Management System (QMS) programs are based on ISO 9001:2015 principles and designed to serve clients in both food and non-food value chains. We also run stand alone trainings on root cause analysis and risk based thinking

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 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.

Trainings

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 and five packages in quality management system (ISO 9001:2015). 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

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, manage food safety risks and contribute towards poverty reduction as they work towards certification to a GFSI recognized scheme
