Our services cover the evaluations of Custom Food Control Plans and verifications of Food Control Plans and National Programmes NP 1, 2 & 3 required under the Food Act 2014.

Step 1 1

Custom Food Control Plan

A Food Control Plan is a comprehensive plan for managing food safely. A Custom FCP is a plan you develop to suit your business. In the plan you need to identify the safety risks involved with what you do, and show how you will manage them.

Step 1 2

Template Food Control Plan

A Template Food Control Plan is suitable for businesses that prepare, make or sell food - such as restaurants, takeaways or off-site caterers. Other businesses can include butchers, fishmongers, delicatessen or retail bakeries.

Step 1 3

National Programme Level 1, 2 & 3

Lower and medium risk businesses follow a National Programme. This means they don’t use written food control plans, but register the business, meet food safety standards and keep some records. They are required to meet food safety standards by adhering to National Programme guidance.

To our amazement we found that Auditing Solutions were able to carry our Food Safety audit at a cost that was 80% cheaper than any other auditing companies. As you can appreciate a 80% saving for a small company like ours is enormous. Auditing Solutions have since carried out our audit and we found them to be very professional and would not hesitate to recommend their services to any food related business in the Horowhenua. They have been the only company that we have come across that have been able to explain the National Programme fully and where we sit within that. This may be due to the fact that Ian has worked with MPI on this
