We are there to help you join together the pieces of food safety management puzzle.

Implementing a Food Safety Management System (FSMS) is a strategic decision which requires a business wide approach, leadership involvement, management commitment, operational ownership, employee involvement, effective project management, planning, training support and change management.

We can help you to develop an effective food safety employee engagement program and a positive Food Safety Culture

Food safety culture is the shared beliefs, attitudes, people's perceptions, behaviours and practices connected to food safety. Although training is very important for improving food safety performance, it does not always deliver the right behaviour and culture change required to embed and sustain food safety management system processes and food hygiene prctices within the organisation.

Food safety is not by what people know about food safety hazards, but what they do in practice. What people do depends very much on the business environment, the organisation's culture and their own beliefs around food safety i.e Food Safety Culture.

 

Every food business has an established unique food safety culture. It is how the business do food safety day in day out. A Positive Food Safety Culture is required to maintain a food safety management system (FSMS), improve food hygiene practices, GMP, factory standards and operational food safety performance of business.
