Partnership provides vital tools and training to assure safe consumer products


SCS Global Services (SCS) and TraceTrust are pleased to announce a joint partnership to provide Food Safety and HACCP trainings for the emerging legal Cannabis and Hemp Industries. The new training programs will ensure that existing cannabis and hemp companies, and those looking to enter these growing markets, will have the tools and training to succeed.

For more than 30 years, SCS has supported U.S., Mexico and Canadian food manufacturers and growers with food safety training courses that reinforce best practices and satisfy the demands of retailers, regulatory agencies, and customers. TraceTrust is an established leader for advocating for safe consumer use of legal Cannabis and Hemp derived products, uniting the industry on education, transparency and standardization. It has established the first independent third-party certification program for dose accuracy and transparency for these products.

The fast expanding manufacturing of Hemp and CBD products, such as edibles and CBD oils, has been under scrutiny to meet the same level of safety and quality as food companies. Education programs are crucial to implementing Good Manufacturing Processes and producing safe consumer products. There will be a complementary webinar offered on CBD, Hemp and Cannabis Safety and Quality November 20 10am-11am PST.

Food safety training services offered by SCS and TraceTrust will build retailer and consumer trust and identify manufacturers and brands that are committed to providing safe and reliable products.
