What a year! As Covid-19 continued to impact our daily lives for another year, a lot more has happened in 2021. From Natasha’s Law on mandatory allergen labelling, hospitality staff shortages, increased takeaway demand and COP26… it’s been a real rollercoaster!
This urged hospitality businesses to adapt, build back stronger and become even more resilient. We also had to be flexible. The whole team has achieved so much this year, making 2021 an extremely successful and positive year for Navitas Safety.
So let’s dive into all the good things we want to remember from 2021! 🧡
An ever bigger Navitas Safety family
We welcomed 22 new full-time team members this year. We always strive to go the extra mile for our partners and as we got really busy, our operations team especially had to grow, welcoming more than 10 new members. Proud of our employees’ integrity, adaptability and creativity, we now have a very diverse team! From Scotland, South Wales, Jordan and France right through to our beloved Leicestershire region, we just love our new family.
A few milestones for 2021
Our 2021 chapter includes some great achievements thanks to our teams’ synergies:
- First, we were awarded the prestigious Foodservice Cateys Award for “Supplier Excellence”.
- Second, we made it to finalists for the 2021 Leicestershire Live Business Awards.
- Third, we reached 70 million temperature recordings from our Smart Pods.
- Then, we released 17+ new free resources, including guides, checklists and webinars.
Finally, we generated over £1 million of revenue, a key figure for us to pursue our mission of becoming the safety solution in every kitchen across the globe.
400+ new brands chose us for their food safety journey
We’re extremely proud of having onboarded more than 400 new brands and thousands of sites this year. Ranging from global multi-site food chains to single-site family businesses – many have taken the plunge for digital food safety, bespoke training and supportive audits! Our new projects this year included working closely with:
- Netflix LA to ensure 5* food safety in the workplace;
- Welcome Break for safer breaks on your long road journeys;
- GETIR for smooth and safe food deliveries;
- Liverpool F.C. to guarantee excellent food safety standards, plus many more!

2 key partnerships
As we continue to grow, we like to partner with other businesses to positively impact the hospitality industry. That’s why we joined forces with the Chef’s Union to work together on improving chefs’ wellbeing and mental health. We have also recently started to collaborate with EMenuNow. This is to further support businesses in their allergen management practices via comprehensive digital menus and enhanced allergen traceability.
2022 – we’re ready!
Here’s to another successful year rich in emotions, success, 5* food hygiene ratings and impeccable health and safety standards! 🚀
