How we started

Knowledge is the key to success - and the Food Safety Network was created as a result of an ever increasing demand for food safety information within the food industry.

Our website is the core of our business, acting as a knowledge bank for industry and consumer alike, where they can access information and resources, register for food safety training, advertise their services and keep updated with pertinent food news.  We want our passion for food safety to be contagious, so that we can encourage all those in the industry to build a food safety culture within their company.

We are more than just a local business – we network with fellow professionals across the globe, to learn from them and to ensure that we are abreast of current food safety issues and worldwide industry trends.

Who we are

Our team brings combined experience from a wealth of sectors to The Food Safety Network portfolio. These include Environmental Health, Food Safety Management Systems, Quality Systems, Occupational Health & Safety, Training and Microbiology.

What we do

The Food Safety Network provides a one-stop, hassle free experience, for both industry and consumer alike…

For the industry we offer resources, access to industry news and an accessible marketing platform For consumers we offer information on relevant legislation, advice, news and opportunity for commentary.

Our focus targets these 5 key areas:

Training

Equipping the industry with accurate and effective training is a key focus of The Food Safety Network.  We have selected technical experts from across the country to present our range of training courses, ranging from Introduction to Food Safety, to HACCP and ISO 22000.  We are perhaps best known for our auditor courses – both the two day Internal Auditor and the SAATCA registered five day Lead Auditor course.  We also offer in-house training by arrangement, suited to your company’s specific needs and location.

Over and above our range of courses is our annual food safety Symposium, which brings the best of international speakers to our shores.

Resources

We realize that knowledge is critical for success, so we provide a number of avenues for the industry to acquire material and resources that will equip them to carry out their jobs more effectively, with the goal of food safety in mind.  We import highly recommended range of Training books, CD’s and Training Aids from Highfield.co.uk.  We also offer industry guidelines such as the Chilled Food Association Guidelines, and we aim to add further guidelines to this in the future.

Directory

Our online Directory of services offers an effective platform for providers of relevant food safety industry services, products, information, associations and organizations to list their services.  This  has proved increasingly popular over the years and we receive numerous electronic and telephonic enquiries, which we connect with the relevant advertisers in our Directory.

Consumer

We aim to create consumer awareness of the issues relating to food safety and to provide an accurate and easy to access library of information for them. The creation of our Facebook page called “Food Crimes” was established in an effort to provide consumers with a place to air their view and experiences when it comes to food issues.

Media

Communication and awareness underpins all that we do at the Network, and we aim to provide a a starting place for readers to access the information they need, either on our website, or through links to other food safety professionals and organisations.  We offer a wealth of articles and information in order to make this goal a reality.  Our impact is not just limited to our website – we supply commentary on food safety articles in industry publications;we active across all the popular social platforms and our new blog will provide additional input oh topical issues.
