FDA Compliance Support Provides Perfect Ingredients for Schepp’s Dakota Deli

With the help of: Impact Dakota


Schepp’s Dakota Deli, was founded in 1995 by Lyle and Jerylyn Schepp, in Lansford, ND. A family-owned business with 22 employees, they produce and provide deli salads to grocery and retail stores and chains in the Midwest. 

The Challenge

Although the company has a strong history of customer satisfaction and food safety success, they were unsure how to respond to the Food Safety Modernization Act and the new regulatory rules enacted by the FDA. Schepp's team confided in Impact Dakota, part of the MEP National Network™, that they were looking for that technical expertise to help ensure they were compliant and give them the confidence to know they could go into any FDA inspection with no worries.
Schepp’s Dakota Deli is very appreciative of the services received through Impact Dakota. The services and relationship established with Dakota Global Consulting are ongoing and have been immeasurably helpful. Thank you.
— Jerilyn Schepp, Vice President

MEP's Role

Impact Dakota collaborated with local North Dakota-based partner and food safety consultant Travis Maddock of Dakota Global Consulting, LLC. Travis worked with the Schepp's team to evaluate existing food safety programs and to provide guidance on drafting of new policies and implementation procedures. More than 15 policies were written, updated, and implemented, including HACCP (hazard analysis critical control point, a management system in which food safety is addressed through the analysis and control of biological, chemical, and physical hazards from raw material production, procurement and handling, to manufacturing, distribution and consumption of the finished product), food defense, and training. Upon completion of this project Schepp's is compliant with all regulatory requirements and meets all customer expectations of food safety.
