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.



Regarding the HCG 3-day HACCP and Preventive Controls Course:
“A great course in a perfect format: 3 days to cover 2 courses was definitely the best way to optimize our time!”
“We had a wonderful instructor who did a great job at training our entire team with HACCP and PCQI.”
She went straight to the important points and kept us focused with her energy, knowledge and humor!”
The most valuable part was being able to use examples from our company and draw comparisons with process described in training exercises.
“Demonstrate and prove to our team that each member can bring and add to the HACCP Plan.”  – Mill Press Imports – April, 2018


Recent participants of an FSIS HACCP course with Bob Galbraith had this to say: “Best class/workshop I’ve had in post-college working world…kept it interesting, informative, and on topic.” -anonymous


“Bob trained and encouraged. He was positive in his presentation and made the training interesting.” – Rob Reynolds, Warehouse Supervisor, Rembrandt Enterprises, Inc. – July, 2017


“You were both great and engaging and I would have never guessed you’d have kept me awake for 20 hours with 12+ hours of commuting in between.  But, you did. That was a boatload of information in a short period of time and you managed it magnificently. You guys were great.  Thank you for making the PC class a very pleasant experience.” – Bob – July 28, 2017


After PCQI training in January, 2017 students had this to say: ” When a highly knowledgeable trainer equally has a very good sense of humor and delivers lectures with a smile it makes understanding very easy.”  “Exceptionally Great” and “Enthusiasm and energy was exceptional.  Knowledge base was fantastic.” – January, 2017


Bob Galbraith of HCG recently helped a company facing a Notice of Intended Enforcement.  That client wrote us to say –  “Bob has been indispensable in guiding us with our HACCP issues with FSIS. It has been a pleasure working with your company and I look forward to continuing to work with your people going forward.” – August 19, 2016


“I cannot thank you enough for the valuable insight and practical advice you gave us.  You have given us a much-needed foundation to build on.”  – Luke Orwig,  Safety Manager, Midcontinent Livestock Supplements, Moberly, MO – May, 2016


“I had been expecting the 2 HACCP training days to ‘drag’ a bit, having done previous HACCP training courses here in UK. In testimony to the skill, knowledge and experience of you and your colleagues as professional trainers, the 2 HACCP days were a highlight of the course! You certainly managed to arouse lots of interaction with the delegates! I will certainly pass on your details to any of our processors working to gain access to the US market.” – Heather Body , Official Veterinary Adviser, Veterinary Public Health Program, DARD U.K. – November, 2015


“Just wanted to thank you for the amazing class in Dallas. I really enjoyed the time I spent in the class. This last week I took the Practitioner and Advanced Practitioner exams and passed it. I certainly couldn’t have done it without your class.” – Varada Datar Gadre, Water Source One –  October, 2015


Pertaining to HACCP training through Univ. of MO and the USDA Foreign Agricultural Service: “Just wanted you to know that Lynn did a great job with the HACCP training last week. Everyone was pleased and satisfied with the information presented and Lynn did an excellent job with both presentation of subject matter and answering a broad array of questions from the group! We would be more than happy to use him again if the opportunity arises.”  – Bruce Lane, Extension Livestock Specialist (retired) – 2015


“On behalf of the entire participants of the GMPs-HACCP training, I would like to thank all of you for the very successful training that was conducted here in The Gambia. During discussions with my fellow participants, the high level of expertise of the trainers, the quality of the presentation and the excellent organization of the workshop was widely acknowledged and appreciated. All of us have learnt a lot which I hope will be implemented to improve food safety in The Gambia.” –  Dr. Kebba Daffeh, Banjul, The Gambia – 2015

You make this so much simpler… thank you.  At times it’s a bit overwhelming, after our calls I come away with a sense of we CAN do this.”  Sherri Heck, MSW Packaging – 2015


“I am extremely impressed and very happy we chose HCG and Dan our trainer was excellent” – Patti Barth, Sparboe Farms, Litchfield, MN – 2015


“Thank YOU!  Your SQF class was not only enjoyable but it also provided an interactive platform for several varied backgrounds which allowed the class to have several discussions that lead to learning as well!  It was a pleasure to meet someone (you) that has a true passion for the food industry and what they do.”   Robin Barth-McGrath, Quality Manager, Wannemacher Packaging – 2015
