Christina Ratcliffe: Food Safety Consultant and Mentor

I run a food hygiene consultancy that focuses on getting high food hygiene ratings for my clients and giving them the peace of mind that they comply with food safety legislation, and ensuring that the food they serve to their customers is safe.

In previous years I worked as a government food inspector and conducted formal inspections and rated food businesses under the Food Standards Authority (FSA) rules, following their strict protocols and guidelines.

Now I am on the side of my client. I am straight talking, approachable, and down to earth with a hands-on approach, providing the personal service which helps my clients succeed.

I understand that running a food business is hard work and that chefs and food business operators want to focus on creating gorgeous delicious food. Completing food safety management systems can sometimes be arduous and time consuming – when all you want to do is run your business.

This is where I can help – with proven food safety processes which will take that headache away. I help you, your chefs and cooks, and your business so that you can focus on what you like doing best.

Using my 25 years of experience I work as an extension of your team to make food safety part of your culture but not a major hassle.
