Since 2017, we’ve assisted 700+ clients throughout the supply chain and we’ve seen it all. If you have a food safety or quality management system problem, we know how to solve it quickly and efficiently.

Mike’s Hot Honey Expands After Getting SQF Certified
“We knew if we wanted to get where we wanted to go with our business and securing some of those big customers, that we needed to have SQF certification. When I first started talking to Kellerman Consulting, I knew they were experts. If you are a small business or a big business, we want to be absolutely best-in-class. You want to hire someone like these guys to make sure that you are living up to those high standards”.

FSQA Manager is Trained in Four Months to Pass Their First BRCGS Audit
Kellerman Consulting does an amazing job of consistently meeting customers’ expectations and taking time to understand the needs of their unique customer. Their service goes above and beyond expectations. I had come to Shelby Foods just 4 months before the initial BRCGS audit and had very little idea what was required for BRCGS. Brian worked with me and patiently answered all my questions until I understood everything.
We have an A rating with BRCGS and I attribute that to Brian Kellerman and Kellerman Consulting for everything they have done to help our business to get the certification. Their initial assessment of our company, the documents, and information provided to make our
plan were great. During the audit it gave me confidence knowing we had everything in line with BRCGS requirements.
Tammy Neyer, FSQM Shelby Cold Storage /Shelby Foods LLC.
Clarendon Flavors’ New SQF Practitioner is Trained in Three Months for SQF Success
“Kellerman Consulting made a world of difference in both the time and quality of implementation of our SQF program at Clarendon Flavors. Honestly, we would have had a very tough time doing it without their expertise. When I took over the position of SQF Practitioner at our company with no prior experience, I had only 3 months to prepare for our first SQF Audit. Tim and Brian rallied around me and made sure I was ready to meet the challenge head on. From writing and reviewing documents, to educating a complete novice, to performing a mock audit in advance, the Kellerman team made sure we were ready not only to pass, but to score a 91 on our first audit. I could not recommend them more highly”!
