Nadia will educate, debate, and argue with you and is fearless in the pursuit of perfection.
We achieved BRCGS A&B v2 certification last week with a Grade AA and zero non-conformances. This is a perfect score.
Due in no small part to working with Lumar and Nadia this past year. We have no hesitation in wholeheartedly recommending that you engage with Lumar and be ready for a tough, expeditious, and successful journey.
Thank you, Nadia!

Nadia Narine has proved an immense help in the achievement of my professional objectives. Those objectives have included the strengthening of our workplace food safety and quality systems, as well as the expansion of my own professional skillset.
Not only does Nadia and her team provide top level instruction and consultation in the full range of topics that are of use to us (Site Standards, HACCP, Internal Auditing, etc…); her comprehensive knowledge of several GFSI benchmarked quality standard schemes (and their relative strengths) has been particularly useful to our team.
Nadia not only possesses an encyclopedic understanding of her subject matter; but she also has a very personable communicative style, and is an excellent instructional talent.
I, and my team see Nadia as an important asset as regards the quality of our organizational food safety defense regime; as well as in the development/enhancement of our individual professional qualifications.
I would definitely recommend Nadia Narine as a trainer for anyone interested in learning more about GFSI policies and best practices. Coming from an operations and sales background, Nadia made it easy to absorb the information and translate it to practical plant scenarios. Nadia made this training easy to comprehend, especially during the coronavirus pandemic, which prevented in-person instruction.
Lumar Food Safety Services has great services. I did the BRC HACCP Course with them. It was really a great experience.
Nadia Narine was my trainer. She made things so simple to understand. I would like to have more courses from her.
The variety of courses provided by Lumar Food Safety Services Ltd. have broadened my food safety knowledge which I am able to utilize on a daily basis, the knowledge and experience shared by Nadia were a big help to fill in the gap between the standards and reality settings. I also had the opportunity to take an online virtual course with them which I found was convenience and Nadia tried her very best to make sure there are as much interaction as possible as in class courses.
I have taken two of Nadia’s courses, one in person, and one virtually. Both classes have given me valuable knowledge for the industry I am in. Nadia was very patient with answering all of my questions! Thank you for all the help!
Nadia was an excellent trainer, by explaining the BRC concepts in a way that is easily understood and applicable to real world events/activities. The material she and Lumar Food Safety provided was helpful too. Next time I need training, I will be coming back to Nadia and Lumar Food Safety Services.
Your virtual course was the best choice for me. It was great that using the technique of the XXIst century I could easily participate from Hungary in the 2-day course of BRC Packaging 5 organized in Canada!
You made a good refreshment of the requirements and the protocol. Especially the examples were very helpful. I could follow the course well. Time management was good. And after the course I passed the exam for the first attempt! Thanks!
I have attended quite few courses over the twenty nine years. Nadia is an exceptional trainer. Her last course I attended was for BRC Issue 8 – 3rd Party Auditor. 5 days course covered a lot of information, Nadia delivered in concise chunks that were easy to absorb. The structure was clear, logical and effective. Nadia had obviously put a lot of thought and expertise into preparation.
This course gave me greater confidence to implement new techniques on my supplier audits. I didn’t just learn “how” to write – “what” and “why” also became much clearer.
Nadia has a calm and logical method of teaching that truly connects with the plant team as she has consulted the plant over the years to improve the Food Safety Programs. Nadia has excellent response time to the questions which arises at the plant level.
I had a great experience with Nadia Narine from Lumar Food Safety Services. She was an excellent trainer who was very educated and knowledgeable. It can be difficult to find adequate training for the BRCGS Food Packaging standard (much of the training I have come across focuses on the food standard but not packaging) but Nadia was very helpful in guiding me through the course. She used a variety of techniques to verify my competency and tailored the training to our place of business where possible. I would definitely take a course with LumarFood Safety Services again!
The BRC S&D training occurred in a suitable location with professional presentation and real life examples to assist me with successful completion of the standard requirements to become an approved auditor. I would use your service again in the future.
I am writing to recommend the services of Lumar Food Safety Services. Nadia Narine is a remarkable trainer and recipient of Approved Training Partner and Consultant of the Year as well as BRCGS Auditor of the year. I had the pleasure of updating my BRC 3rd Party Auditor certification in a class that Nadia taught at the beginning of 2019. Nadia was informative on the new issue 8 for Food Safety. She welcomed questions and feedback throughout the course. When challenged with a question that could have multiple answers she would consult with BRCGS to verify answers before explain to the class. Nadia is not only a skilled trainer but a throrough auditor as well. She provided many real life examples to help the class participants understand how to apply the material in a manufacturing setting.
I recommend the services of Lumar Food Safety Services not only for training but also auditing and application of BRCGS standards.
I had a great experience using Nadia Narine as my trainer. She was very accommodating to my crazy schedule and made my goal of obtaining my BRC Professional Badge an accomplishment. If it wasn’t for her, it would have been much harder to complete this task. Her instruction is very clear and she presents it in a manner that is very easy to understand. If you do have a question, she is very patient and answers it in a way that makes sense. She is also very responsive to any emails or questions that may come up before or after the training session. All-in-all, I would definitely recommend Nadia and I will use her again in the future for any other training need that I may have.
The trainer was very knowledgeable about the training material for each of the courses I’ve attended. The most valuable part was interacting with the trainer, there was plenty of trainer attention and opportunities for participation and exchanges, so that I and other course participants could ask questions. All the back and forth conversation was very helpful in learning the material and provided clarification for questions and doubt raised during my day to day job experience. There is no hesitation in recommending training through Lumar Food Safety Ltd (Trainer – Nadia Narine) to other colleagues.
Nadia is a subject matter expert when it comes to food safety. She has a long and reputable track record in the food industry. I had her as a trainer in Scarborough, Canada for SQF – Manufacture of Food Packaging. Her class was very engaging. She made the training materials come alive through interactive learning.
I took the BRC Root Cause Analysis Course with Nadia. She held a smaller class which allowed for great discussions. Nadia is very knowledgeable and provides several practical examples to help drive concepts home. She is both personable and passionate, and I would recommend her to anyone looking for a food safety and compliance trainer.
I have attended many food safety seminars and courses. Nadia is definitely one of the best instructors I’ve had. She is engaging, keeps the content interesting and uses many real life examples to reinforce the content throughout the course.
Embassy Ingredients has partnered with Lumar Food Safety Serviced to enhance our Food Safety and Quality Management Systems. Nadia’s passion for food safety, expertise, guidance and ability to provide training goes above and beyond all of our expectations. We highly recommend Nadia and Lumar Food Safety Services.
I have had the pleasure to work with Nadia Narine and Lumar Food safety Services Ltd. on more than one occasion. Nadia and the Lumar team are knowledgeable, patient, understanding and have the ability to explain topics so they are clear and understandable. Nadia is a warm, personable trainer who genuinely takes pride in the work she does. I would highly recommend Nadia and the Lumar Food safety Services team to anyone (group) who seeks to improve their grasp on food safety.
I received the BRC Agent & Brokers Issue 2 Auditor training by Nadia this past year. Overall, she was very professional and capable of explaining the standard. She was very knowledgeable in the requirements of the standard and understood how to effectively convey the differences from Issue 1 to Issue 2 to me. It was a unique training; she and I were remote (Canada and USA) and so she effectively conducted the training over a training portal/presentation. We were able to talk and see the slideshows while she discussed the topics.
Nadia did a very good job of keeping the training interesting so that I could comprehend the detailed information. The course was approximately one day long, so we discussed the information in a deliberate manner.
I enjoyed the training and would recommend Nadia for other training.
And lastly, I scored well on the exam after the training, so she must have been an effective trainer.
