Who I am

My name is Joshua Heinrichs and Fresh Safe Food is my company.

Food and agriculture is in my blood.

I planted my first crop of barley in my sandbox and at 6 years old I sold my first wagon load of butternut squash door to door.

In my career I’ve worked alongside some incredibly talented entrepreneurs. They are the hidden force behind many of the products we know and love.

I have worked with many of the global top 10 Retailers and Consumer Product Manufacturers along with customers in North & South America, Africa, Europe and Asia.

My experience has been detailed at every level from market research, trial batching, process development, writing checklists, designing procedures and trouble shooting.

I led my first complete SQF implementation in 2013 and I am trained as an SQF Auditor by the SQF Institute.

Each year, my work affects over $200 million in safe, healthy food around the world.

All of my work is covered by our Audit-Clad Guarantee .

I would love to know how I can work with you.

Confident compliance.

SQF | FDA Food Safety Plans | Food Safety Consulting

Food Safety requirements can be highly technical and quite complex.

Perhaps you feel like you need translation?

The SQF Code, needed for SQF Certification and GFSI Certification is very exhaustive and technical.

We help small to medium-sized food businesses confidently meet the requirements of their auditor, and ultimately their customers.

We work with SQF Certification, FDA Food Safety Plans and other Food Safety Management Projects that help food producers meet customer requirements and ensure that all food is produced in a safe, healthy manner.

Our projects include HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points) and GMP (Good Manufacturing Practices) work.

In addition, we work with other national and proprietary compliance programs.

These include USDA Organic, Costco, Kroger, Walmart, General Mills, PepsiCo, YUM Brands, Aldi, Ahold Delhaize Group, Publix, Bonduelle, Whole Foods and Campbell’s Soup.

FDA Food Safety Plan

Do you have your FDA Food Safety Plan ready to meet the requirements of the Food Safety Modernization Act (FSMA) Final Rule for Preventive Controls for Human Food?


We conduct our FDA Food Safety Plan assignments remotely, partially on site or completely on site, depending on the needs of the client.

Trust us with your FDA Food Safety Plan.

Are you importing into the United States or Canada?

Are you selling your food to Amazon US? Other E-Commerce sites? 

Then you already know you need a FDA Food Safety Preventive Controls Plan.

We provide FDA Food Safety Plans and Safe Food for Canadians Preventive Controls.

An FDA Food Safety Plan is required in order to meet the FDA requirements for Food Safety Plan filing to sell food products in the USA.

I am trained and qualified (PCQI) according to the FDA to generate the FDA food safety plan you will need to comply with the legislation.

Development and implementation of preventive Controls is essential to producing a compliant FDA Food Safety Plan.

You can use the FDA Food Safety Plan Builder to produce your plan, or you can trust us with the project and have a compliant Food Safety Plan without the hassle.

Our FDA Food Safety Plans can be done within 5 business days.
