It is vital that all food produced commercially is safe to eat. This is not only a legal obligation, but also a commercial and moral responsibility. To ensure that food is safe, all the processes the food passes through from delivery, storage, production to dispatch must meet the same high standards.

Supervisors hold the responsibility of ensuring that staff are operating consistently to the standards set. If problems occur, supervisors and managers will be accountable. They must therefore be totally familiar with company procedures, current legislation and have the relevant knowledge to be able to pass on those high standards to the staff they supervise.
