Guardian Plus

Guardian Plus is the bespoke service that puts an experienced  food safety expert at the centre of your business.

I am Louise Roberts and I will work with you and your business to understand the challenges that you are facing. The five step process that I have developed will deliver a solution to your food safety problem.

Assess – Initial contact to understand whether I can help you and whether we “fit”. 

Audit – Site visit (chargeable at £250 + expenses and VAT,  payable in advance) to walk around, audit the problem and chat to your team. From this I will produce a discussion document.

Design – If the proposal is acceptable, I will design a plan to resolve the challenge that you are facing.

Produce – whether it is a full HACCP plan, a supplier audit or complaint investigation, I will produce the outcome that has been agreed.

Review – After a suitable period of time, a review of any recommendations and actions is advised.

Technical Manager and Technical Director roles are also undertaken, either on an interim and/or part- time basis. Please call me to discuss the fee structure for this.

Since March 2020, Louise aided my startup from with patience, time to understand what my business needs.

She treats her customers as if she is part of the their team – very important.

Louise created our HACCP system. Is helping us work towards SALSA accreditation, any legal issues, introductions to network contacts who maybe able to help, assist with deciphering lab results, etc.

Her knowledge in all food science and regulations is outstanding. What she may not know she’ll research.

As a small business owner I highly recommend Louise Roberts for long term working relationship.
