FOOD HYGIENE INSPECTIONS

FOOD SAFETY SERVICES

Food businesses must take safety into account more than ever, with evolving legislation, higher consumer expectation and unlimited financial penalties. However, even with effective management systems and safety standards in place, incidents can still occur. 

Food safety issues can pose a risk to health, cause irreparable reputational damage and lead to significant costs. Our specialist team gives businesses the understanding to minimise risks, and supports with solutions to mitigate the impact of accidents or incidents. 
 

INDEPENDENT SUPPORT WITH FOOD SAFETY INCIDENTS


Even with the most rigid safety measures in place, accidents or emergencies can occur. As experts in food safety and safety management, Bureau Veritas has a team of experienced professionals ready to support you when it is needed most.

Our services include:

  • Food safety investigations – understanding the cause of food safety issues including alleged allergy cases and food poisonings, mitigating the impact and working to meet your legal and business obligations post-incident
  • H&S accident investigations – investigating H&S accidents and near misses, including RIDDOR, to mitigate any further action and deliver improvements going forward
  • Local authority support – for example in case of a low Environmental Health Officer score (Food Hygiene Rating Scheme), we work in partnership to identify gaps, ensure corrective actions and assist with follow up inspections 
  • Failed audit support – establishing the cause of failed safety audits and developing corrective actions to improve performance 
  • Food safety e-learning – flexible training solutions to give your teams the knowledge and understanding to improve food safety across your organisation 
     

SUPPORTING FOOD BUSINESSES AT EVERY STEP

In addition to support in the case of accident or incident, Bureau Veritas also assists food businesses to meet their food safety obligations around the opening of new sites, following a merger or acquisitions, as well as providing specialist technical advice.
