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 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.

“When I first met Louise, I needed to get SALSA accreditation, but I was overwhelmed by the amount of work that I needed to do to get through the accreditation process. It was a very stressful time.

Louise came to my rescue and did an excellent job of calming me down. She then updated and organised our system and helped us to achieve SALSA accreditation and maintain the paperwork. We have now been working together for a year and I would highly recommend Louise to anyone who is working towards SALSA or wants to maintain their accreditation. She is always available to help, goes above and beyond and totally understands the pressures on a small food business owner.”
