biography

Renzo Gomez’ early passion for food led him to earn a Bachelor of Science and Biological Engineering degree from the University of Guelph. Joining the food industry in 2004, and focusing his career in food processing operations, Renzo has held various progressive roles in quality assurance and food safety management. It was through these various roles that he identified that the food industry was urgently in need of more robust, science-based, and affordable food safety solutions. In 2015 Renzo founded Quantum Food Solutions Inc. to fill this industry need. Quantum Food Solutions Inc. provides Renzo a platform by which to use his expertise and passion to integrate the latest scientific, engineering, and computational methods to tackle existing and emerging food industry challenges. His areas of expertise include, but are not limited to food safety, food microbiology, thermal / non-thermal food processing operations and statistical process control.

Career Highlights:

  • Hired as a thermal processing authority to transition some of the industry’s leading poultry processors from uncooked / frozen poultry products to much safer cooked products using forced-convection, impingement / spiral ovens (e.g., superheated steam). Products include, but are not limited to chicken nuggets, chicken burgers, chicken & turkey wings, chicken balls, etc. These products are sold across main retail chains (e.g., Loblaw, Sobeys, etc). Thermal evaluations have also met strict government compliance requirements and have attained ‘no objection’ status from the Canadian Food Inspection Agency.
  • Serve industry as process authority in safe processing of ready-to-eat, heat treated, shelf-stable meat / poultry products (e.g., pepperoni, jerky, salami, among others).
Jessica Knight is a graduate of McMaster University’s engineering program, with a Bachelor of Technology, and a specialization in Biotech Engineering. Her passion for food safety and food manufacturing is demonstrated in the way she consistently applies her proficiency in microbiology, biochemistry, mycology, and computer science to the food industry.

As Food Safety and Quality Systems Specialist at Quantum Food Solutions Inc. Jessica is responsible for developing, implementing, maintaining and validating food safety and quality systems (SQF/ BRC/ HACCP – FSEP/ CFIA) for a wide range of food products. Her food processing expertise includes: meat and poultry, vegan, sauces, chocolate, coffee, beverages, cheese, tofu, oils, pasta, among others. She has gained extensive “hands-on” experience implementing detailed, highly customized food safety plans which meet the strict standards of Global Food Safety Initiative (GFSI).

She applies her strong science and engineering background to ensure critical processes (e.g., cooking, cooling, sanitation, allergen controls, etc.) deliver the intended level of food safety by means of the latest scientific principles, computerized modelling tools and high-accuracy instruments. Her interests include food microbiology and biochemistry, along with laboratory work such as culturing and studying various strains of fungi commonly found in foods.
