All food businesses have to ensure that whatever policies and procedures are in place are working as intended and that standards are being maintained. Regular food safety audits and monitoring through inspection is an essential part of this. Environmental Health Officers (EHO’s) can call on your premises unannounced and ask to inspect your food hygiene management system. The impact on your business of a poor food hygiene rating can be immeasurable.

Sentient’s food safety audits provide food businesses with a verification process and a Food Safety Management System. Food safety audits have proved to be a very successful technique of identifying problems in both the food supply chain and in processing of the food within the business. Our food safety audit team can act as contact points not only with Environmental Health Officers but also the food suppliers to provide the most cost effective way of solving any food hygiene issues.
