Quality Assurance

We take quality assurance very seriously. Every factory that we purchase from is inspected by one of our team to ensure they meet the strict standards we set. We do not purchase or stock goods from any supplier unless they are BRC or ISO 22000 certified.

We also conduct our random lab testing on all suppliers' products to ensure they meet the necessary levels set by Global Foods which is often stricter than required by EU law.

Suppliers' accreditation by product.
