Oscar Camacho is the co-founder and President of Superior Food Safety and Superior Food Safety Franchising USA-based companies. His consulting and training engagements span the globe and the food industry, including food production at large, medium, and small-scale manufacturing plants. With over 34 years of progressive hands-on experience in the food industry, including ownership of two food processing plants and extensive work with two of the largest food manufacturers in the world. Camacho’s inspiring, first-person accounts of food safety successes and failures put accountability into sharp focus for his clients and their employees. Food safety workers emerge from Superior Food Safety training or consulting sessions with a clear understanding of what it means to do the right thing.
What sets Mr. Camacho’s work apart is his ability to analyze top-to-bottom organizational charts and quickly zero in on systemic food safety flaws and deficiencies within each company. He identifies gaps and institutes ways to improve food safety culture, recommending the proper management for the right food safety program. As companies with compromised food safety systems know, merely instituting programs and hoping they are enforced is a costly and futile exercise. Success requires company-wide allegiance to excellence, clear lines of communication and reporting, personal accountability, provision of resources to maintain the programs, and continuous improvement when systems do not work smoothly.
