What is a food safety audit?

Food safety audits are here to check your compliance with the required food safety standards set out by your local authority.

Take it as a key step to ensure your business’ food safety management system is flawless in keeping your business and people safe. It’s a documented and evidence-based evaluation that will flag out any key food safety issues.

All food businesses are legally required to keep their premises safe for staff and customers, based on a wide panel of laws and regulations. So, stay in the clear and get your food audits sorted! ✅

Why is it important?

Food safety audits will run multiple in-depth checks of your food business and highlight any potential food safety hazards so that you can quickly act on it.

Expect to be checked on:
→ Food Safety & Hygiene (e.g. how food is handled)
→ Structure of your business (e.g. cleanliness, layout)
→ The food safety management processes in place.

Your food safety audit report will underline any areas of concern, allowing you to address any issues and perfect your food safety standards. Keep your people safe and your hygiene rating high! 🧐

Choosing a food safety auditor

Partnering with a specialist for your food safety audits is essential. Food safety audits can be a daunting experience. But the good news is that it doesn’t have to be if you go with the right passionate, judgement-free and dedicated partner!

Look out for:
→ Food Auditor’s experience
→ Qualifications
→ Type of approach and service
→ Self-audits and remote services options.

Take the weight off your shoulders with a food safety auditor that you can depend on. 🧡

🚨 Red flag system for quick visualisation of severe issues, ensuring the most urgent are immediately brought to attention and prioritised.

⚙️ Automated action plans are generated with clear corrective actions, allowing for any defects to be resolved hassle-free. Priority levels can be set with designated improvement timeframes and assigned to the responsible user.

🗓️ Get complete traceability and accountability with our audit timeline. From audit creation to sign off, you'll have total visibility of all submissions, comments, attachments and sign offs.

Any foodservice business is legally required to have EHO inspections to ensure the premises are safe for staff and customers. An Environmental Health Officer can show up any time any day to check if your business meets the required food safety standards set by your local authority.
