Magnifi Group and Food Safety & Quality Systems, LLC Partner to Implement Online Education Solutions
Magnifi Group and Food Safety and Quality Systems to launch online education programs for corporations and individuals within the Food Industry.
April 21, 2017 – Chicago Ridge, IL – Magnifi Group, Inc., developer of Learn-Wise, a leading eLearning platform for the Food and Medical Device Industries and Food Safety & Quality Systems, LLC, an internationally recognized training and consulting company that provides classroom training programs to food processors, packers and distributors, have entered into an exclusive partnership to provide online training solutions to companies and individuals within the food industry.
The partnership comes on the heels of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) – the first of its rules went into effect last year for qualified facilities producing Human and Animal food. Essentially these regulations lay down deadlines for food companies to adhere to new manufacturing processes and requirements designed to increase food safety.
Andrew Wolpe, President and COO of Magnifi Group, said the partnership is the perfect blend between necessary onsite training and eLearning. “Food Safety and Quality Systems, LLC can now set up preliminary online courses prior to classroom and practical courses,” Wolpe said. Wolpe added that the partnership will initially focus on two initiatives. The first will be the delivery of a comprehensive eLearning solution to corporations including the technology, the content and consulting support. The second initiative will be the creation and delivery of standardized online courses for individuals to obtain the credentials required to gain access to food processing facilities.
“These two initiatives are the start of a much larger vision,” said Christina Kelley-Astorga, Co-Founder of Food Safety and Quality Systems. “There’s significant demand from the industry to get under FSMA compliance,” Astorga said. ‘Our partnership with Magnifi Group allows us to accelerate necessary training and ultimately automate the entire learning process; from the classroom to the manufacturing plant in real-time,” Astorga said.
