Why Hire a CFS

Improve Your Team

A CFS broadens the knowledge base for professionals working in the science of food. By developing proficiencies in other aspects of the field, like R&D or Quality Assurance (QA), employees develop a more holistic understanding of the industry. This translates to improvements in efficiency, communication, and overall team performance.

Retain Talent

Investing in employee development sends a clear message that employees are valued, which in turn increases engagement and retention rates. By supporting your employee’s CFS certification, you’ll better equip them for the challenges your organization faces and inspire them to invest in you the way that you’ve invested in them.

Recruit Better

You work hard to recruit and hire the most qualified people to ensure your organization has the talent necessary to address the issues you face. The CFS program makes it easier to identify scientific talent, saving you time, money, and stress.

Don’t have a CFS on your team?

You can get one! When you invest in your team, you invest in the future of your company. Sponsor your employees’ CFS certifications to improve the performance of your team and increase retention. Or, you can make recruiting a breeze by seeking out scientific talent pre-vetted with a CFS credential.
