Millions of dollars are spent every year in the name of quality assurance. Throughout the food industry, crucial decisions about buying, processing, inventory and marketing are made using subjective product assessment methods like touch, appearance, and odor.

The CQR will not, and should not, replace experienced quality assurance personnel. The CQR provides QA teams, buyers and business owners with a powerful tool to make better business decisions and improve processes.
