"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!"

"We've been working with Assured Food Safety since we started Living Goodness in May 2015 and couldn't recommend them highly enough.
Back then we were newbies to the food industry and we contacted a number of organisations trying to work out what was required to ensure we met food safety regulations. We struggled to get any clarity or insight until we spoke to Shane at Assured Food Safety. One of the first things we noticed was his customer service, rather than bamboozle us with regulations he invited us in for a meeting to discuss face to face the options available to us.
It was then that our 6 year (ongoing) journey with Assured Food Safety began. They helped us establish a comprehensive Food Control Plan which was approved and continues to be audited by MPI. They provide ongoing technical support to our business via annual audits ensuring we're keeping the right records & checking our processes & procedures. And they're always at the end of an email or phone should we ever have questions or issues, which we do a lot!
Their approach is always knowledgeable, fast, clear and supportive. As business owners who have to wear many hats its fantastic to feel confident working with Assured Food Safety that we are making & selling safe compliant food.
Should you have any further questions the please don't hesitate to contact us.""

"Our company has engaged Assured Food Safety over the last 5 years to consult on our food safety requirements. Specifically I have worked closely with Shane over this time as he is a member of our HACCP team. His experience and technical knowledge has been integral in helping our company attain the Woolworths Quality Assurance (WQA) standard.
While Shane is very detail orientated when ensuring compliance to regulatory standards he retains a sense of humour and practical approach to finding solutions to issues. I consider Assured Food Safety a key supplier to our business and would strongly recommend their services to companies that require a food safety specialist to achieve higher levels of compliance within their business."

"Shane helped us to set up NZGAP programme to meet the requirement of Foodstuffs standard when we set up our business in 2008. He gave us detailed guidelines on Food Safety standards, and helped us set up documentation and procedures to meet all the necessary requirements.
His expertise and thorough documentations really saved us a lot of time in getting the business set up on the right track. Our business grows over the years, and recently he has assisted us in passing the Broker Assessment required by Foodstuffs. We really enjoy Shane's services and would recommend him to any business that needs help needs the expertise!"
