Based in Málaga, Spain, Milagros started with SAI Global in 2008 auditing ISO 9001/ 14001, OHSAS, FSSC, BRCGS and Social Accountability Standards.
She has completed over 400 audits in more than 30 countries on 5 continents and contributed to the development of BRCGS Packaging & Packaging Materials Issue 5.
Outside work, Milagros continues to drive food safety and quality during her travels. Her latest trip was to Pakistan when she was invited to universities in Karachi, Islamabad and Jamshoro to explore ways to collaborate on a food safety project involving female empowerment.
“Angela Isadora Duncan was my first inspiration because she united the soul of an artist, the freedom of thinking and a passionate nature and an icon to the feminist movement.”
“I have seen genuine joy from companies achieving their first certification, sometimes following failure, in the hope of exploiting new and significant business opportunities for the company, and for the development of professional careers for their employees. So, I send thanks to BRCGS, my Certification Body SAI Global, to all my colleagues who share knowledge, experience and advice, and to my customers who taught me as much as I could teach them.”
“I am very honoured to have been chosen as BRCGS Auditor of the Year 2021. I have always been passionate about technology and industrial processes and gained more than 20 years of experience in continual improvement systems and risk management. Above all, I like people and am always intrigued by what can be achieved when they are motivated and encouraged.”
