Aside from our strict management of temperature, as a team we pride ourselves on our standards of hygiene. This standard is regularly verified by a stringent set of quality tests, undertaken by a recognised independent NAMAS accredited pathology company. Our food processing plant is fully approved to standards in this country, with a plant identification mark or approval number signifying that we are fully approved as a cutting plant. As part of this accreditation, we undergo an audit by the meat hygiene service to demonstrate conformance to UK and EU food safety legislation. We are also audited annually against BRC Global Standards for food standards by the independent body SAI Global. Compliance to the standard requires adoption of a fully implemented HACCP system, a documented quality management system, control of the factory environment, staff, operations and process. In addition we are certified under the voluntary beef labelling scheme.
