Having been in the Hygiene & Food Safety consulting business for over 10 years, conducting well over 10 000 hours of audits within a variety of clients ranging from catering, retail, restaurants and hotels. I have seen most of what a kitchen does in terms of hygiene and food safety (the best and the worst).
I believe that sharing knowledge in awareness,understanding and implementation of hygiene and food safety is key to developing a food safety system that will be effective, efficient and sustainable.
