The requirement – ISO 9001 and ISO 22000 implementation. Our client required implementation of the above standards, but required confirmation.

The solution – Using our expert knowledge and experience of food manufacturing businesses, their existing systems and procedures were assessed and improved as necessary this removed unnecessary documentation and streamlined existing processes, thus ensuring all processes were safe, hygienic and efficient, whilst maintaining a profitable business. Their HACCP and pre-requisite programme were refined and tested (validated and verified) in accordance with the requirements of the ISO 22000.

All staff were trained in CIEH accredited food hygiene for manufacturers, and key staff were trained to Level 4 in HACCP for manufacturing principles and internal auditing skills specifically tailored for food businesses.

Using our retained service provision, the client, has quadrupled their turnover and have secured contracts which they would not have received without their certifications in ISO 9001 and ISO 22000. They maintain their ongoing commitment to those systems through regular internal audits, undertaken by HACCP UK and we are also members of their food safety team providing the benefit of our expert input into their monthly food safety team meetings.
