Quality & Compliance

VMEC’s Focus on Quality

We strive to help you improve operations, build stronger relationships with customers, and achieve long-term success through a commitment to quality and continuous improvement. We support the International Organization of Standards (ISO) Quality Certification with training that is company specific, and through knowledge-sharing training events.

We also support Food Safety Quality training for small to medium food manufacturers. They will receive enhanced and consistent food safety training options, including classroom training and a diverse learning cohort group.

Research and Evidence Based Outcomes

VMEC’s training on manufacturing product quality, as well as food quality, are the key building blocks for increasing customer satisfaction, efficiency, and establishing a culture of continuous improvement. As Vermont’s trusted resource for over 25 years, VMEC generates a significant positive return on your investment.  In 2023 alone, we helped our VT manufacturers create 671 jobs, retain 210 jobs and assist with $5,467,000 in cost savings. We strongly promote an engaged workforce who continuously improve processes to benefit your businesses.

Our Goal

We focus on improving or establishing your ISO quality management systems for Vermont industries.

We also support small and medium businesses who manufacture or manage food products to the safest level.
