Hygiene & Food Safety Standard

Written by Ralph Early, Senior Lecturer at Harper Adams University College, the HEFF Standard is a self-audit checklist, written in order to give users the ability to ensure that good practises are being employed, standards are being met and that hygiene and food safety laws are being complied with.

It provides users with a structured basis for the management and routine assessment of hygiene and food safety within their business. The Standard is a method by which producers can demonstrate to local authority inspectors their competence and commitment in the management of hygiene and food safety.

It is relevant to the following businesses:
- Processors or manufacturers of foodstuffs
- Retailers of food products
- Caterers / foodservice operations

The HEFF Standard is free to both Producer and Associate members. Non-members can purchase the HEFF Standard for £75.00 + VAT.  For more information on the HEFF standard please send us your contact details and we will arrange for a member of staff to contact you
