Food Safety Audits

Food Safety Audits

The maintenance of good standards of food safety and hygiene is dependent, in part, on an independent and critical assessment of your food business’ operational standards and practices.

A regular, comprehensive, and formally documented audit/inspection covering food safety and hygiene practices can be the most effective way forward for you to achieve legal compliance. A food safety audit will focus on a full inspection of your food premises, including a detailed review of the procedures and documentation.

Here at auditingfoodsafety we provide a fresh pair of eyes to look at your business to see what you are doing wrong.  We believe that in order to improve your standards you need to be aware of your failings.

Our audits assess compliance with current legislation, codes of practice, best practice and recognised standards that your business is working towards. We are able to provide you with a realistic and reliable verification system for your food safety management system.

Your routine Local Authority Food Hygiene Inspection will score you on three main areas:

  • Hygiene
  • Structure
  • Confidence in Management 

Our report will reflect this and you will be given a predictive score in line with the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme of a level between 0-5.

The results of the audit are discussed with key personnel/management, who will be offered advice and guidance on improving food hygiene and safety performance. The report also includes a detailed action plan.
