We Help People Make Food They Can Trust
Simple - Engaging - Effective
Navigate represents a unique blend of expertise, industry connections, and innovative solutions.
We coach and train teams for enhanced food safety practices throughout the food manufacturing industry.
Navigate specializes in providing food safety online training, coaching, and consulting for food manufacturing companies. We help improve food safety management, and achieve or maintain food safety certifications, particularly in Global Food Safety Standards benchmarked to the Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI), such as BRC, SQF, and FSSC22000.
Navigate's approach is to build capacity and promote independence. The company is led by widely respected Food Safety Expert Alex Hanley. We develop training and training plans, customize programs, and provide high-level coaching to ensure your processes are streamlined and audit-ready every day.
Our Happy Customers
Kind words from people we've had the pleasure of working with!
We employed Navigate to help us achieve certification through a third party audit. Entering the audit prep we honestly felt it was going to be an onerous exercise in paperwork that would provide little value to us, except to expand our customer base once we had passed a third party audit.
Alex worked with us to apply the standards in a way that has actually made our operation more efficient. We were able to create programs and procedures in a way that doesn’t feel like we are keeping records for the sole purpose of passing an audit. These programs not only benefited our business but we have grown into a stronger operation that runs more smoothly.

Schoolhouse Gluten-Free Gourmet
Leclerc Group has always had a strong quality and food safety culture. We are committed to continuously improving our programs and systems and our clients recognize that. It all started with the help of Alex Hanley about 15 years ago when he was a food safety auditor. All these years later, our internal auditor training program is still based on Alex’s unique approach.
Sébastien Beaulieu, Quality Vice-President
We have been using Navigate’s program for several years now and have seen many impressive changes in our plant. Now that employees understand the system, they speak to their supervisors when they see something that doesn’t make sense, thereby nipping issues in the bud.
The overall culture of food safety has improved in our facility to the point that I’m confident we could pass an unannounced audit.
