The purpose of the GMA-SAFE audit is to provide a narrative assessment report that would allow the customer to take a ‘virtual tour’ of a supplier facility. GMA-SAFE has been performing this service since 2001 both in North America and globally and has performed close to 6,000 audits since its inception. The program offers seven different assessments: Food Protection, Food Protection- Express, Aseptic, Dairy, Spice, Packaging, and Warehouse/Distribution. GMA-SAFE has been utilized around the world to provide information to large multi-national customers about their supplier base. In June of 2008, the GMA-SAFE program was acquired by SAI Global (known as QMI-SAI Global in North America). We have strived to maintain its original vision of being the information source to the food industry by providing a high level of service to our customers requesting GMA-SAFE assessments. We have identified some changes which have been completed or may be in process of completion to improve the GMA-SAFE process and reporting.
