So, what does our Technical Service include?

Label Checks / PPDS / Artwork Approvals

It is mandatory to label all pre-packed food for direct sale (PPDS) with a full list of ingredients and any of the 14 allergens emphasised in order to comply with UK food allergen legislation:

  • Our expert consultants will work with you to make sure your labels are accurate and meet the legal standards no matter how complex (or simple) your recipe.
  • If it’s regulatory advice you need, then our experts are also here to help with either specific or general labelling issues – whether it’s new products in development right through to on-shelf products.

Menu Checks & Allergen Guides

The information you feature on your menus – whether printed or online – is critical and can even be a matter of life or death.  Our Food Safety consultants will check your menus to make sure they feature the correct allergen declarations are not misleading for consumers.

Specification Writing & Approvals

Making sure all your specifications are watertight and to gold standard is a time consuming task – especially if it’s not your area of expertise.  That’s where we can help.  Using a range of web-based systems our team of Food Safety experts can write, proof read and validate your specifications meet your brand standards and policies.

Pack Copy Creation

When it comes to packaging design, it’s not just about consumer appeal but labelling is a key component and mustn’t be overlooked.  To avoid any expensive design mistakes or delays, our team are on hand to create and / or approve pack copy that is legally compliant and contains all the mandatory information required on a label including:

  • Product name
  • Weight
  • Nutrition
  • Storage

Supply Chain Assurance

Is your supply chain meeting your specifications and standards? We can carry out your supplier assurance programme on your behalf, freeing up valuable time.  This would include:

  • Approval of new suppliers through desktop audits
  • Supplier certification checks
  • Supplier audits

BRC Implementation & Support

To be compliant, many food manufacturers and suppliers are required to achieve BRCGS certification set against the relevant standard: Global Food Standard, Agents & Brokers, Storage & Distribution and Packaging Standards.  If you are looking to start BRCGS certification, or are already in the process, then we can help you achieve success through our expert consultancy and auditing service.
