DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept. 13, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Eurofins Food Safety Systems and AGGI Asociados of Mexico are excited to announce their partnership and signed agreement to provide co-branded public trainings for the food manufacturing markets in Mexico. The partnership kicked off with a well-attended debut course, FSMA Preventive Controls for Human Food, on July 20th-22nd in Mexico City. This new development demonstrates AGGI's continued efforts to provide valuable food safety services to Mexico and further exemplifies Eurofins' commitment to do the same across North America.
AGGI Asociados is a company that has been dedicated to the development of suppliers in the food, pharmaceutical, and personal care industries for more than 20 years. Through its qualified and experienced staff as well as its support programs for auditing, consulting, training, and related systems such as Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP), AGGI's goal is to ensure the quality, efficacy and safety of its customers' products.
Eurofins Food Safety Systems is well-known as an industry-leading food safety training provider with its extensive portfolio of public courses as well as its roots as the global leader of analytical testing services. Continually investing in resources to stay ahead of the dynamic regulatory climate of the food manufacturing sector, Eurofins' commitment to providing its clients with comprehensive food safety solutions begins with valuable employee training.
Following the introductory Preventive Controls course in Mexico City, Eurofins and AGGI will expand their partnership to deliver more training opportunities for food producers and processors in Mexico. Additional offerings will include HACCP, Internal Food Safety Auditor courses and training to the GFSI benchmarked standard, Safe Quality Food (SQF).
"As a huge exporter to the United States, we've recognized the necessity for additional food safety training in Mexico and jumped at the chance to collaborate with the already well-known and reputable AGGI Asociados," said Eurofins' Food Safety Systems Director, Gary Smith. "Together with our expertise in the recent FSMA regulations and GFSI standards, we hope to be a very valuable asset to the food manufacturing industries of Mexico."
"The business relationship between Eurofins and AGGI provides the foundation for a greater presence and growth potential for food safety services in Mexico and also throughout Latin America. Our knowledge of the Mexican marketplace as well as our experience coupled with the skill sets provided by Eurofins undoubtedly ensures a successful future of providing high quality services to all companies in the food market in Mexico," said Ofelia Castanada Saldate of AGGI.
