We know what Auditors are looking for and surprisingly it’s the little things that are missed before an audit:
- Openings to your facility should be sealed well to eliminate pest access
- Dust layers at height above production, packing and warehousing areas
- Flaky paint anywhere in your production area
- Ceiling Cavities cleaned
- Vents and ducting cleaned
- Floors maintained and sealed
- Clean and sanitary buildings
- Bird Fouling in production, packing, warehousing and distribution
- Moss, Mould and gunge build up
The list can and does go on …
Before and After external wall clean
You can help yourself by ensuring your facility stays at compliance standard by conducting Management System Audits – internal audits.
We can help you design an annual plan for looking after the little things that become the big things at audit. We work with major NZ Food Manufacturers to maintain a schedule of works for each and every area from production through to distribution. We provide solutions for effective corrective actions and are constantly exploring improvements and new techniques to make your facility production safe and audit compliant.

- We look after the small things so you can concentrate on the big things
