"Rob is a food safety expert. With the HACCP Food Safety System he helped us design, we feel secure. This system has worked to protect us in the past and I am sure it will protect our interest in the future. When we have questions, Rob has answers. He is an asset to our team. Our staff has become the food safety professionals for our customers."

"I've found him (Rob) very good to work with and very reliable. He does what he promises."
Inver Grove Heights & South Saint Paul Schools
Rob has developed HACCP Food Safety Systems in both of the school districts I manage. The training he has provided helps our staff maintain our systems to consistently provide safe food for our students and faculty. Northern Sun has helped us become the experts at our system. It is easy to use, manage, and maintain. We look forward to his annual verification audits because they help us maintain and reinforce the system we use."
"We serve a large number of people. We cannot afford to have them become ill from mistakes made during preparation of their food. Northern Sun, using our food safety knowledge and production expertise, helped us develop an easily manageable food safety program using HACCP principles. We look forward to his annual visits to verify and refine our procedures. We now are confident that we know and do food safety consistently."
Jamie Reed, Meat Manager/Co-owner
"We hired Northern Sun Consulting, to help us professionally develop our system so it would stand the test of time. The forms and system we created were easy to use, simple to operate, and we understand them"
"When we were faced with the restrictive 14-day discard by date requirement, we simply called Rob and we are now in the final stage of variance approval. He has taken care of us all the way. This would have been impossible without his help"
"Rob verifies our system is working, helps with staff training issues, and keeps it simple and down to earth for us. These activities have saved me lots of time"
"The Cool Read units I installed work faster and makes monitoring of refrigeration temperatures very simple. I trust the accuracy of my measurements and I feel protected in a legal sense because of it. This investment solved many of HACCP monitoring problems and helped make our system successful in practice."

"When Rob was a Regulator, he involved us in the small meat plant HACCP Pilot. It was very educational and we are still using the decisions we made then in our current plan. The information we shared in the MAMP newsletters, in many ways, still apply today. Rob stays in touch and continues to be concerned with providing the services we need."
