Warrington based Christeyns Food Hygiene has joined forces with global inspection operators, Control Union, to offer food manufacturers fully accredited, dedicated food safety and hygiene training.
Through this partnership, food and beverage manufacturers can benefit from completely integrated hygiene accreditation ensuring compliance with BRCGS by undertaking new courses such as Vulnerability Assessment & Food Fraud, Validation & Verification and Lead Auditor. The Christeyns Academy will continue to support customers with the nationally accredited training courses from the CPD Certification Service, Royal Society for Public Health and Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance, already on offer. These include subjects from Listeria and allergen management, through CIP to the well-regarded Cleaning and Disinfection: Management and Practice course.
Christeyns Food Hygiene’s Training Academy is based at their UK headquarters in Warrington, where they offer a range of courses along with bespoke training developed to meet specific customer or industry needs. In addition, courses can be undertaken on customer’s sites to reduce travel time and disruption to delegates and businesses.
Peter Littleton, Technical Director at Christeyns Food Hygiene, commented: “by forming a partnership with Control Union we can build on the already excellent reputation enjoyed by our Training Academy and add to our suite of courses designed to enhance the knowledge and expertise across the range of our customers.”
“The access to the full range of BRCGS courses, along with the highly sought after BRC Professional programme, offers a sector first from an innovative hygiene support company such as ourselves,” concluded Littleton.
With its foundation in agriculture, Control Union Certifications has focused its efforts in developing services around the sustainability of the industry’s supply chains which feed into the food, feed, forestry, biomass, bioenergy, social compliance and textiles markets. Their BRC approved trainers are fully proficient in training on all aspects of version 8 of the BRC Food Safety Audit, with many years’ experience within the technical, quality and hygiene areas of the food manufacturing industry.
“Control Union is committed to advancing the UK’s food assurance systems and processes, from organic audits to BRCGS food safety certifications,” comments Franco Costantini, Managing Director of Control Union UK.
“Given Christeyns Food Hygiene’s strong presence in the food processing industry this collaboration is an excellent opportunity for both parties to expand our food safety services. Control Union will support Christeyns Food Hygiene with food safety technical expertise, the ultimate aim being to provide efficient and effective product-service solutions to manufacturers,” says Franco.
