Knowing who grew the cabbages in my coleslaw will not be enough

coleslawBeing able to prove the origin of ALL your ingredients, suppliers processes, suppliers supplier’s etc. Absolute place of origin, how it has got here, who has touched it, stored it and how long has it taken to get there will be critical knowledge.

As we see more and more public concern over food chain security the onus will fall on all successful companies to prove the reliable source of their ingredients.The latest evidence shows huge populous distrust in both USA and China of the safety of their respective countries food chain.

This will become an integral part of every company’s marketing story and will need to be verifiable and independently audited. This is a great opportunity for NZ primary and added value food exporters.

I recommend you integrate this thinking into your business plan now so it can become part of the way you think and an increased focus in your food safety plan.

Don’t forget to tell your customers – they really do want to know.

Seeding your Idea

Save the natureMany great ideas need time to develop and mature and therefore are best tested many times through their development, right from when they are just an inkling of thought.

When you treat your ideas like seeds you will protect, nurture, feed and care for them.  In the right care they will grow and your rewards will come when you harvest the fruits of your labour.

Break every thing into stages

stagesEvery goal or project breaks into natural parts or stages.

Respect the value of a stage done well as it will add to the size of  your result.  If done well this example will yield a result greater than its parts:

  1. Research opportunity
  2. Develop strategy
  3. Implementation
  4. Measure 
  5. Refine process

Dr John- a master class from my dying friend

phdMy friend John Kramer was awarded his PHd  at a special ceremony at Mary Potter Hospice, last weekend – his thesis being on Food Safety.

Sadly he is terminally ill with a very aggressive bone cancer. He said to me finally being a doctor was a very proud moment but unfortunately he won’t live long enough for it to be of any advantage to him.

In that moment I realized the benefit of setting goals is paid out incrementally during the journey to achieve them in the form of belief and purpose. John has incredible strength and courage and is an inspiration to all of us to work hard at being the best we can right up to clocking out.

I hope I can show the same commitment to my goals and courage as I enter the shadow of my life!!
