Our auditors work closely with your team to identify any gaps or areas of non-compliance, helping you proactively address issues and continuously improve your food safety practices. Ultimately, by conducting comprehensive audits, we help you make informed decisions regarding your sites to minimise risks and safeguard your brand reputation.

Audits from RQA are:

Food Supplier Audits evaluate the practices and processes of your suppliers to assess their compliance with food safety standards and regulations.

By conducting comprehensive supplier audits, we help you make informed decisions regarding your suppliers, minimise risks, and safeguard your brand reputation.

Food Hygiene Audits

Our Food Hygiene Audits are designed to assess and evaluate the hygiene practices and standards in food service establishments. Our experienced auditors conduct thorough inspections to ensure that proper hygiene protocols are followed, including cleanliness, sanitation, and safe food handling practices.

Food Allergen Audits & Foreign Body Assessments

We also offer specialist food auditing services, including Food Allergen Audits and Foreign Body Assessments.

Food Allergen Audits focus on assessing the effectiveness of allergen control measures in your facility, including ingredient handling, labelling accuracy, cross-contamination prevention, and staff training.

Our expert team can also carry out Foreign Body Assessments to identify any potential risks and provide a strategy to ensure you and your customers are protected against any foreign body contamination.
