What HCG Clients are Saying

We never suggest choosing a consultant or trainer without first understanding something about them and their organization.  HCG stands on the firm foundation of over 20 years in this industry.  Here’s what a few of our clients have said about our work.

“On behalf of Water Lilies Food, I want to thank you for your time in conducting the onsite HACCP training…we got good feedback from the employees about the training contents and your method of delivery. It was excellent!  The employees liked how you engaged them…allowed them to do the thinking and challenged them…in addition, you broke down the contents to the bare minimum.  This is our first onsite HACCP training and you have helped us to believe that we can do more trainings like this.  All the employees enjoyed the time and appreciate your effort. They were all smiles coming out of the training room.  We will also like to extend our appreciation to the HACCP consulting group. You truly have the best group of consultants working for you and we are very happy to have contracted this training with your group.  We are all looking forward to the 2nd session…” – Ibrahim Musa, Water Lilies Food – July, 2019

I look forward to continuing to work with you all as we progress on our plant.” – Pineland Natural Meats – February, 2019

“We had a private course at our restaurant group location with our employees and employees from another bakery in town in attendance. Our instructor, Charlie, was super thorough and used examples specific to our processes. This helped make the content relevant to our business. We are building a commissary location and our goal is to implement these procedures from the beginning. Charlie took this into account when explaining the concepts.” – January, 2019

“…I need to share the good impact that my consulting business has had due to the extrapolation of your teaching in your recent University of Arkansas Advanced HACCP course.

You guys were great.  Thank you for making the PC class a very pleasant experience.” – Bob – July 28, 2017
