You've built a great brand around a tasty food and great customer service — but if you put food safety on the back burner, you're risking everything that you've built. Food safety is at the core of customer experience.
Today, more than ever before, food safety violations are top of mind with your customers. Consumers don't hesitate to share their experiences — a single negative food safety incident can pose serious risks to your bottom line and your brand.
F&B safety Solutions has developed the industry's most consultative food safety assessment experience, going beyond a checklist audit to give you a comprehensive overview of your location's performance in every area that matters.
We start with the basics — baseline criteria based on FDA 's Model Food Code and other regulatory authority standard. But unlike a compliance or quality assurance audit.
A food-borne illness outbreak at a single location of a chain restaurant would keep more than a third of consumers from dining at any location in the chain. And 17 percent say they'd never return to the chain again. It only gets worse when multiple locations of a chain are involved.
Food Safety & Hygiene Audits and inspections are conducted by our Professionals who are trained in proper food quality, maintenance and preparation practices. The main tasks of a health inspector include the following: Educate restaurateurs and staff on safe food handling and preparation. Conduct inspections of food service establishments to assure local, state and federal health codes are being followed. Collect samples, if necessary, to trace the possible sources of a food poisoning outbreak. Three types of health inspections that can occur at any establishment. Routine Inspection: During this unannounced visit, the inspector looks at all aspects of an establishment to assure compliance with the local food regulations. Everything from employee handwashing practices to dumpster lids are looked at during routine inspections. Complaint Inspection: Usually a customer has either become sick or filed a complaint about possible unsafe practices. Just because a complaint has been filed does not mean the condition exists, but you can be assured the inspector will give your facility the white glove treatment and can take samples of questionable material. Follow-Up Inspection: This inspection will occur after an establishment has been given a certain amount of time to correct critical violations. If the inspector says, “I will be back in two weeks to check on your progress”, take them seriously.
F&B food safety assessments address every aspect of food safety in your restaurants, whether you operate a quick service or fast food operation, fast casual eatery, casual or fine dining establishment.
