Simple - Engaging - Effective
Navigate represents the unique blend of expertise, innovative solutions, and industry connections. Building on the leadership and expertise of Global Food Safety Expert Alex Hanley, we train, coach, and guide teams in food manufacturing facilities.
We help with enhanced food safety practices, specifically in the area of standards benchmarked to the GFSI such as BRC, SQF, FSSC22000, as well as regulatory compliance to standards set forth by government agencies such as the USFDA and the CFIA.
Our approach is to build capacity and promote independence. We have a small but ambitious team who works towards your success.
Make Food Safety programs Simple - Engaging - Effective. Our main goal is to reduce the complexity of food safety management and help you:
- Develop simple programs that are easy to maintain while still meeting regulatory requirements.
- Engage your team in food safety by defining roles and responsibilities.
- Focus on all of your business imperatives.
People are the core of the food industry, and our goal is to navigate them through complicated food safety processes, improve the everyday practice within food safety and set people up for success. We promise to keep it simple while making sure it’s solid. And to put some fun back into your day.
We work with food manufacturing companies, beverage producers, and packaging for food producers. Our work spans small enterprises with less than 10 employees to multi-site organizations with 50+ facilities. We’ve successfully assisted multiple organizations in the achievement of certification and maintenance of simple solid food safety programs.
We serve our customers with 3 lines of products: online training, coaching, and consulting. All products work in concert and complement each other. We use customer experience to create training content and use it to educate our customers online. Moving in multiple directions is our unique way to develop valuable content and better solve your food safety challenges.
Navigate enjoys a stellar reputation in the global food safety sphere and has become a known quantity in the space. We work collaboratively with industry experts and partners, using their knowledge and experience to add value to our training and promote our unique approach.

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.
Jennifer Laughlin, Owner
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.
