The quality of the food you supply is of vital importance
to your customers. The ability to make a health/nutritional
claim can secure competitive advantage and premium prices.
It is essential that these claims are backed by cost effective
analysis, carried out by accredited laboratories.
Contamination scares (Sudan, Pesticides, Histamine, Biotoxins, etc), product recalls and legislation changes all commit food & drink companies to a programme of due diligence for analytical and microbiological testing.
Claims such as Gluten Free, or the risk of cross contamination with a foreign allergen need to backed up with routine testing.
Red Dragon Associates Ltd. are able to support small/medium food companies who need to find reliable tests/laboratories to meet their needs for food testing, and develop test regimes that will save time & money yet meet due diligence and legislation.
Design and implementation of HACCP
(A legal requirement for all food producers.)
HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Point) programmes are the fundamental pillar of any due diligence programme.
It is essential, in the quest for the perfect HACCP, to ensure that the team is lead by a team member that is experienced and trained in the principles of HACCP.
Red Dragon Associates Ltd has extensive experience in leading the HACCP team, designing, implementing and helping to monitor the resultant plan to ensure that it is entirely valid and, importantly, easy for all employees (at all levels) to understand.
