Capital Cuisine Pass Jamie Oliver Audit
As we strive for more high profile customers, either directly or through one of our wholesale partners, the question of hygiene audits and inspections become part and parcel of running a successful food manufacturing business.
We have recently been talking to Jamie Oliver’s people about supplying a few products and they sent a team of techies in to us to have a look at how well we operate, the day was a great success and I’m glad to say the team did us proud and we have been officially signed off as approved suppliers to the Jamie empire, watch this space for more news as we continue our NPD efforts in their direction! Just after that we had another hygiene audit from an independent company representing one of our wholesale partners, again happy to report that we passed with 90% - well done team.
Audits as we mentioned are a way of life and one of the best is the unannounced visit from the local council’s environmental health officer (or two), who announced themselves last week at the door much to our surprise! We have since we started had a great working relationship with the local EHO and it is these on the spot inspections that reveal the true state of the business as you have no time to prepare, again I’m glad to report that all was well and I think we have managed to keep our 5 star hygiene rating for another year – again well done team.
All of this really does give us comfort that the food we produce is made in an environment that we take very seriously – and it show!
