Maintaining high and constantly improving standards of Food Safety requires documented processes and procedures to ensure there is a consistency of working methods and also provides information on areas of improvement.
Due diligence in food safety refers to being able to prove that your business has done everything reasonably possible to prevent food safety breaches. Documentation must be kept up to date if it is required to be used in a due diligence defence.
Many food safety and quality standards require a documented quality system. Many companies require one even though they are not certified to a standard. Details of the organisational and management policies and procedures provide a framework by which the organisation will achieve the requirements of the standard or business objectives. Very often these are too time consuming to maintain as people focus on operational duties.

We can provide advice on how to integrate your systems and documentation to ensure efficient and effective operation. Documentation systems are a necessity of most businesses but time consuming if they become unwieldy.
