Training courses delivered digitally and tracked on Alert65

Davy’s has been selling fine and specially selected wines to bars and wholesalers across London for more than 150 years.  A fifth generation family business, maintaining the highest standards is core to its ongoing success.

With 25 characterful wine bars, two wine shops and a wine merchants, Food Hygiene and Health & Safety are priorities. So, working with trusted partners to deliver Davy’s exacting standards and passion for quality is critical.

Food Alert was able to provide all-round compliance membership, including ongoing consultancy, audits, staff training and our safety compliance digital platform, Alert65, on which Davy’s could also integrate its HR platform to.

Talent Development Manager, Victoria Harrison:

“We not only need to ensure that our team can work safely and deliver the high standards customers rightly expect, but ensure we have a motivated and engaged team that enjoy what they do. Training is our mechanism for delivering this and developing talent from within.

“Having our training visible on one platform, has allowed us to easily identify the training needs of individuals and select the right courses for them. Alert65’s summary report has enabled operations managers to have a clear visual of training requirements and completed training in their area, which has added in succession and development decisions.

Talent Development Manager, Victoria Harrison:

“Working with Food Alert has been a positive experience, with honest, open communication and any challenges that arise from time to time are resolved quickly. Our training and audits are of the highest quality, which help us to keep top talent and maintain the very high standards on which our reputation has been built.

“But it’s Alert65, which has transformed our processes and operations, so that we have a singular platform that connects our safety compliance requirements with our Learning Management System. This has reduced the amount of valuable time spent on administration, allowing our managers to focus on our customers and deliver a first-class experience.”
