Read here our service & product reviews…

I have studied the system developed by Adele Adams & Kassy Marsh, to provide a shield against food business infiltration by those seeking to cause damage, either directly or indirectly. It uses the well-known and acknowledged methodology of HACCP. To me, the implementation of their systems seems logical and if followed correctly, will no doubt leave your business in a much better place in terms of defending against those who seek to commit criminal activities.

Professor Chris Elliott - Professor of Food Safety & Director of the Institute for Global Food Security at Queen's University Belfast

Great service from start to finish, Techni-K have provided us with an excellent new HACCP system which has simplified our systems and made us stronger in terms of auditing and accreditation requirements. As a Company we would strongly recommend their services to our customer and supplier base and will be using them in any future consultation that we require.

Tim Briggs – Technical Manager – Trans Oceanic Meat Company (Nottingham) Ltd

The initial package on offer sounded useful for a small brewer who although had a HACCP system in place needed improve and update the format.As there are many companies providing “off the shelf” packages it is difficult to know what you are going to get until you have purchased the package – it was very reassuring therefore to be able contact and obtain some advice on the product and be reassured there would be some help if so required once the package was purchased. This indeed was the case as we needed to adjust/modify the template to suit our purposes and as well as the package being very good the advice we were given was very useful. I would certainly recommend this package.

Colin Brown – Head Brewer – Director – Belvoir Brewery

We approached Techni-K at the Harrogate Food Show in June 2015 and are extremely pleased that we did! Techni-K have proved to be invaluable to our company and have helped us every step of the way with our aim to gain BRC status. The tooling they have provided has been exceptional and has been devised with clarity and ease. We would certainly recommend Techni K to any business. Not only are they professional and knowledgeable but they are friendly, approachable and nothing is ever too much trouble. Congratulations Techni-K! We are sure that your business will continue to grow and flourish for many years to come!

Natalie, Berries Ltd

I have worked with the Techni-K team since 2013, their advice in both production and technical aspects of food manufacture has been invaluable through our transition from a kitchen table enterprise to volume manufacture. Kassy has taken the time to understand our business needs and their SALSA quality manual is concise and easy to follow. I am pleased to have Techni-k as part of the team and would recommend their pragmatic approach to anyone whatever stage the business is at.

Teri-Ann Winslow, Love At First Bake

Techni-K grasped our complex cooked meat manufacture systems and were able to build a new HACCP expediently, whilst displaying an impressive level of understanding. Their clarity in reviewing our processes is impressive.

Steve Pearce, Director of Southover Foods Ltd

We would like to thank you for all the good work you did with getting the haccp plan for us up and running. EHO was well impressed.

Richard, Owner of The Little Yorkshire Pie

A massive thank you from us (for our HACCP).

Mario, Owner of Gusto Olianas

This pack really does do what it claims to! When I needed to check on something I was unsure about, Techni-K responded quickly and were very helpful – it’s good to know the help is there when you need it.

Nikki Race - Keejays

Our BRC auditor was very impressed, as was I. We went through it together, how the scoring worked, it was easy to explain – no issues raised. I’m certainly glad I asked for your assistance on our assessment!

Philip Wood - Tomlinson's Dairies

Thanks for the material the BRC Auditor was very impressed with it.
