Carringtons Catering

Project Overview

Carringtons Catering has a wealth of experience organising catering for events throughout the northwest.

Carringtons Catering asked Epica Health & Safety to review and bring in line both their health and safety and food hygiene management systems across each of their venues and kitchens. Following this they required regular kitchen and service inspections and record audits to be carried out by us.

Epica Health & Safety carried out a gap analysis to identify the immediate needs from a legislative and bench mark perspective. The information gathered was also reviewed against host organization and clients requirements at their venues. A draft plan was developed and delivered to both the Managing Director and Executive Chef for approval.

Approval was gained and the health and safety and food hygiene management system was developed. Epica Health & Safety delivered the management system to key personnel that had responsibilities and accountabilities. We then gave Carringtons Catering aid in the implementation of the health and safety and food hygiene management systems across the company.

On a regular basis Epica Health & Safety attend Carringtons Catering venues and carry out kitchen and service inspections and record audits. These are carried out in the presence of the Head Chef in service at the time of the visit. The outcome is discussed and actions raised are issued to relevant personnel for closure in a timely fashion.

Carringtons Catering continue to subscribe to Epica Health & Safety for continual health, safety and food hygiene support for each of their venues.


“It’s no coincidence that we achieve 5 stars at all our venues for standards of hygiene. We are able to work throughout our venues knowing that all aspects of health and safety are covered.

Precise records are kept and more than meet any requirements that are asked for by the relevant authorities and insurances.

Training courses provided too have been excellent.

The most priceless service that is provided is the fantastic advice that is available with just a phone call. I cannot recommend Epica Health & Safety highly enough.”
