About Graham Ries

I am a man who wants to share his knowledge and experience with the world. Some call me radical - some call me far worse but it bothers me not because I have learned - eventually - how to forgive. In my 30 something years in the food industry I have learned a thing or two too - and I want to share that knowledge with the world through the writing and designing of training materials - booklets, handbooks and PowerPoint Presentations so far. I have a deep affection for the HACCP system and it is my heart felt desire to create training material that allows people to implement their own HACCP systems for themselves, and not be indebted to anyone else, neither be held ransom to inexperienced consultants that do little more than charge you a small fortune and give you hardly anything in return.

JC Penney had the same idea in 1902 in the small mining town of Kemmerer in Wyoming, USA when he competed for business against between 14 and 21 saloons and purportedly 23 brothels. All offered credit (as did other stores in the town) but he insisted on Cash Only so that no one was ever indebted to him at month end. This simple strategy built on real concern for people's financial welfare, coupled with a desire for doing business God's way made him a billionaire.

I have no desires to be a billionaire but I do have a genuine desire to help people.

I am devoted to Precious Father God - without Him I am nothing. God is my everything and I am everything I am because of Him. My business is dedicated to God - everything I do I do as if I were doing it for Him and not for humankind. He has been at my righthand side since the day I was born.
