We have put many protocols in place in our high grade food production facility to protect both our staff and customers. One of the most obvious of these is the enforced use of increased PPE gear which now includes face masks in addition to the already standard PPE of laundered uniforms, onsite only work boots, gloves, hairnets and beard covers. All staff are required to change their full PPE gear and wash their hands every time they exit and re-enter the production space and all work benches and work spaces are sanitised frequently between runs.
The number of staff on site at any one time has decreased drastically and split shifts have allowed staff to maintain a 2 meter distance at all times while anywhere on the premises. Shift times and breaks are split to ensure each staff member is able to stay in their small work bubble.
At the beginning of every shift, each staff member undergoes a health check which registers their temperature and ensures they are not experiencing any symptoms. They are also required to fill out a movement register for both themselves and everyone in their bubble.
All administration and customer service support teams are in self isolation and working from home to reduce the number of people coming and going from the production facility.
We have a strict Food Control Plan in place which outlines the way in which inwards goods are tracked and managed, and how the food must be managed right the way from how it is cooked, packed, dispatched and delivered.
