About Alimenti Food Sciences
Do you ever wonder if your paperwork is working for you? Are you confident that your food safety paperwork would protect you if you needed it for a due diligence defence? Are you targeting bigger customers that want lots of documentation or even an accreditation?
It’s hard to find time for food safety paperwork when you’re busy producing amazing food or drink.
Work with me and I’ll help you create a food safety management system for your business that will help you ensure that you can rely on the food safety paperwork – leaving you time to get on with the things you do best.

Business Continuity Planning
What would you do if the road to your site was blocked for 3 days? Do you have a business continuity plan?
Business continuity plans (BCP) are also an area that I can help with. Databarracks reported in 2016 that as many as 33% of businesses do not have a BCP. Of the 67% that have BCP in place, many will fail to test or review their plans on a regular basis. This makes the BCP outdated. BCP are not only about Information Technology (IT) systems. BCP are designed to get your business trading at an acceptable level, as soon as possible. Scenarios can include loss of use of buildings, loss of key members of staff, interruption of services such as water or electricity or an important supplier going bankrupt.
