Hygiene & Food Safety Consultant

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.

I am the author of The Food Safety Pillars : An Introduction to Hygiene & Food Safety. You can find my book in ebook format or in paper back on Amazon.
