Food safety is paramount in all aspects of our operations.

Our in-house quality assurance team oversees controls ranging from product traceability and metal detection of meats, to stringent hygiene practices and product specifications.

We provide detailed allergen and dietary information to all our customers. Whether it comes to labelling our products, providing the information via information sheets or online, we ensure that our customers can make informed choices about the products they buy.

Who we work with:

In 2017, we entered into a Primary Authority Partnership with Cumbria Trading Standards. This ensures that our hygiene practices and meat are of the highest standard and we comply with all legal requirements regarding weights, labelling, traceability and much more.

Our on-site cutting plant and wholesale storage and distribution of ambient, chilled and frozen goods are regularly audited by the STS to a defined standard. This is a key consideration for our NHS, care home and education customers.
