abstract
This study provides an insight into the quality improvement (QI) tools and techniques used in Belgian food SMEs. The originality of this study is the identification and selection of appropriate quality improvement techniques for food SMEs based on their strategy, need, resources and competencies. This paper also proposes a matrix that will facilitate managers in organizations to embark on a QI journey based on their quality maturity level, resource availability and statistical knowledge. Future research will be conducted to test the proposed matrix within food SMEs across the European Continent.
