We cover all aspects of creating and running a CPU such as design with consideration to HACCP flow, labelling and cost technology, logistic support, product sourcing as well as importing and exporting. We can also provide advice on successful applications for SALSA and BRC accreditation.
FOOD SAFETY MANAGEMENT & TRAINING
We have experience in training teams to a level 3, creating company specific internal audits, manufacturing food premises policies and food safety auditing.
We have experts who are on hand to review and deliver a commercially viable menu using cost analysis and GP projections. We can also create bespoke, detailed recipe manuals and nutritional analyses.
We're here to either create your marketing strategy or complement the one you already have in place, using our expertise of franchising to ensure that no stone is left unturned when it comes to attracting new or returning business.
OPERATIONAL ASSESSMENT & REVIEW
With a fresh set of eyes, we can review everything from staff and training costs to profit & loss. With a common sense approach we will audit every aspect of the business or target specific areas.
We can assist in determining the best and most cost effective solutions for the importing or exporting of key items in your business from equipment through to food produce. We can provide you with all the details you need in order to establish whether the logistics of your produce is viable and give detail of any associated costs or customs requirements.

"Having known and worked with Stuart on and off for some 15 years, his encyclopaedic knowledge of food operations and ability to find solutions and build lasting relationships will be an asset to anyone that he supports."
Andreas Karlsson, Managing Director - Sticks'n'Sushi
"I was the lead investor in the wagamama business in Australia, that invested in over 20 restaurants over a 10 year period. We worked closely with the international team at wagamama in London who provided input on brand standards and audited each of our sites. Stuart was the "front-end" of this team, visiting Australia regularly and closely inspecting each and every site. Stuart was conscientious and meticulous in his audits. He was critical when needed, but constructive on actions that needed to be taken. Stuart worked effectively with the local teams and provided useful reports to our management team. I am very happy to recommend Stuart as I am sure he will have a positive impact on any restaurant business."
