Our Retail Partners in the Musgrave Network take pride in their Food Safety & Quality standards.
To ensure this is maintained, all are approved to the Q Mark for Hygiene and Food Safety as managed by EIQA on behalf of Musgrave. Annual approval requires passing a detailed, unannounced audit.
Key to the maintenance of the Food Safety systems is the Food Safety Champion. The role also ensures that staff are fully trained in food safety principles in addition to the specifics of their role.
SuperValu and Centra stores have been part of the Q Mark programme for over 30 years. The benefits include:
- Approval to an independent Hygiene & Food Safety accreditation enhances customer confidence – third party certification confirms that the organisation aspires to the highest standards of hygiene and food safety.
- Provides the opportunity to benchmark against other organisations using the same framework.
- Encourages and fosters excellence in Hygiene and Food Safety Standards.
In 2015, a bespoke Food Safety Training Programme was launched for all SuperValu and Centra Food Safety Champions. This provides end-to-end Food Safety Training to ensure that each graduate is an expert in their role. It also enables them to train all store staff to the appropriate level of Food Safety.
