The microbiological testing within the stores includes the all service areas as well as the ability to test general hygiene within the store that is extremely relevant during the coronavirus pandemic.
As a 3rd party auditing and laboratory firm and through the collective experience at FCS, our Food Retail Audits provide valuable feedback on where the non-conformances are and how to correct them. Our audits are customizable to each retail store’s unique needs.
Our visual audit is performed on-site using our cloud-based technology, meaning we are able to provide immediate feedback on all areas of the food retail store.
Our audits are focussed on exactly what is happening on the ground in terms of the cleanliness, cleaning procedures and food safety. These are the areas that have a direct impact on the safety of food.
In addition, we assist our clients in building an honest and “reflective of conditions” checklist and record-keeping system.
Our honest, consultative approach to our food retail audit means we help you maintain and improve your standards through rigorous auditing, professional advice and passionately wanting to improve food safety for all, as reflected in our mission statement: Provide food quality and food safety assurance to the Food Manufacturing, Hospitality and Retail industries by conducting Hygiene Survey Risk Assessments and Independent Third-Party Laboratory Testing services, and in so doing, improve food quality and safety to the end consumer.
