Everyone is talking about rethinking food safety culture in 2020, but no one seems to know how to apply it to their food safety culture plans.


We can help!


Whether you’re starting from scratch or looking to enhance existing food safety culture plans, you’re not alone. In this insightful webinar, we’ll discuss four essential methods to ensure your food safety culture plan starts paying off today more than it ever has before. You’ll walk away inspired and equipped with tangible ideas you can put to work immediately, including:


  • Getting and keeping employee attention on compliance procedures
  • Training employees in distracting times

This focus ultimately pays off when you’re managing the operational disruptions that come with a pandemic and find yourself in an economy that requires you reap full benefit for every investment you make.

Kari Hensien

As president of RizePoint, Kari Hensien is championing a new continuous quality initiative. Since travel and interpersonal interactions have been devastated by COVID-19, it's been challenging for businesses to obtain regular third-party audits, which are integral to access and analyze key data and ensure safety compliance across the enterprise. Hensien is facilitating an increased self-assessment auditing model, where businesses and their locations can use RizePoint's digital platform themselves, resulting in more frequent audits and broader visibility during the pandemic and beyond.

After Azzule, Regusci became an owner at WQS, a certification body that does thousands of audits annually across the Western Hemisphere.

Aden Donaldson
Quality Assurance Consultant
McDonald's Restaurants Limited

Aden Donaldson has worked in the McDonald’s system for nearly 25 years having started as a 17 year old staff member in his local restaurant. Having maintained his part time job during university, he graduated and took a salaried position within restaurant operations. Aden ran restaurants for McDonald’s for a further five years before being seconded to work in the QA department within the UK Supply Chain team. His initial role was working within and then managing the field service team for QA (known as the “Across the Counter Quality Team”). This largely dealt with training and coaching restaurant staff on expected quality and food safety standards in restaurants, collating and reporting findings to operations and suppliers as well as other ad hoc work. This led to Aden’s involvement with RizePoint as he was looking for a better tool to capture and report the data that was collated during the restaurant visits completed by team. For the last four years Aden has worked as part of the Quality Assurance team in the UK, primarily managing the savoury sauce, potato, beverages, and latterly Chicken categories.
