Agriculture and Food Hygiene Monitored Approval Scheme
SGS’s hygiene monitored approval scheme is a hygiene audit system that delivers measurable improvements to your good hygiene practices.
It also helps you to develop your food hygiene training and comply with international food hygiene regulations.
If your company does not have an internal process in place for the independent measurement and management of good hygiene practices, we can help. Our robust hygiene monitored approval scheme is also flexible enough to be tailored to your needs. We cover most food operations in the hospitality and retail sectors, including:
- Restaurants and catering
- Quick service restaurants
- Food retail stores
- Convenience stores
Our food specialists are equipped to undertake hygiene monitored audits wherever you are. That is because we have a global network and operate to a documented system, with strict quality control procedures relevant to each country. We can apply the scheme to operations of varying complexity and risk, allowing you to compare different businesses under your ownership. By measuring your performance against the established benchmark provided by our programme, you can use it as the basis for your own reward or performance measurement scheme(s). And you are able to make comparisons according to area, region or brand and monitor performance trends over time.
Our typical food hygiene audit includes a detailed assessment of:
- Building structure
- Cleaning regime
- Documentation, monitoring and records
- Emergency procedures
- Equipment and facilities
- Food Display
- Personal hygiene
- Pest control
- Product handling
- Storage areas
