From our customers

"The prospect of writing and setting up an effective HACCP plan is a daunting task. Fortunately for us we were directed to Shane as a man who could help.

Having used Shane's services for three years now to assist us with all our HACCP obligations & FSP statutory compliance under the Act, I cannot recommend highly enough him to anyone considering utilising his services.

What can often be a stressful & complex undertaking is made clear & indeed pleasant by having Shane at hand. This accompanied with Shane's down to earth nature and understanding of the "cost to business" reality of the process, means that he is always looking at ways of minimising cost while still achieving superb results. From the very onset of any audit, to final sign-off, Shane's willingness to engage & go the extra mile is simply outstanding. His technical knowledge is second to none, while his communication of the facts in layman's terms is to be applauded!"

Karl Tiefenbacher, Managing Director, Gellicious Gelato Ltd/Kaffee Eis
