Enterprise Mastery™

Advisors use their proprietary Enterprise MasteryTM standard as the benchmark for all advisory services.  The Enterprise Mastery standard is based on the elements of the FDA Food Code for restaurant food safety, the FDA Preventative Controls for Human Food Manufacturing for supply chain food safety, and the foodservice industry’s best practices to achieve enterprise (corporate) level managerial control of food safety risk (developed in and for the foodservice industry).

The primary program elements of the Enterprise MasteryTM  of food safety risk in an enterprise foodservice business (e.g., a restaurant chain) are based on the Risk Vetting of the menu to identify all of the hazards associated with the processes of food production at the supplier, distributor, and foodservice operations.  This includes:

  • Foodservice operational associated hazards during the receiving, storing, preparing, and serving of the menu items in the restaurant facility

  • Supplier operational associated hazards during the processing of the source of approved ingredients and products (including packaging) used in the restaurant facilities

  • Distribution and logistics operational hazards in the transportation and warehousing of ingredients and products to be delivered to the restaurant facilities, including storage and delivery of products for off-premise sales from restaurants

The critical component of the Enterprise MasteryTM  of food safety risk is in the execution of the controls for each probable hazard either by the supplier or during restaurant operations; with the confidence that each supplier and restaurant (at each facility) can demonstrate compliance to the execution of the controls.  Finally, a corporate food safety management program that obtains Enterprise MasteryTM defines the food safety specifications for each ingredient and product produced by suppliers and warehoused/transported by logistics, defines the food safety management systems to be used in restaurant operations, and assures compliance across the enterprise; using gap assessments to identify gaps for continuous improvement.

The Enterprise Mastery™ standard (see below) has been developed with this point of view and with significant industry-leading thought leadership experience and inputs, including;
