Our story

“ Helping Food & Drink Companies Attract More Customers Through Food Safety Systems”

Food safety consultants


Food Safety Assist was set up in Kent in 2000 with the aim to offer UK food sector business with tailored practical solutions in meeting quality food safety and health and safety standards. In 2010 the main office re-located to Hexham, Northumberland allowing us to be able to offer our services across many parts of the UK. We currently service business in London, South East & home counties, Northern England and Southern Scotland.

The company was started by Brian Humphreys, having worked with major supermarkets and suppliers/producers, gives him a strong oversight of all sectors of the industry and common problems that can occur. Being a SALSA auditor and mentor helps with keeping up to date with all food issues, new legislations and standards.

We are a friendly, approachable but professional team. Rather than being a big faceless company we feel it is important to build relationships and gain confidence and trust with each of our individual clients. Providing practical advice and support that meets your business needs and not selling you something you do not require. Up most in our mind is to always develop simple, easy to understand food safety systems that clients can use efficiently and effectively.

Our flexible approach means it is possible to provide onsite or office based support most hours of the day, assisting from the shop floor right through to the mentoring of directors. We offer a range of contracts depending on the needs and circumstances of each individual client; from pay-as-you-go to tailored project based packages. 

Food Safety Assist is a registered training centre of the Royal Society of Public Health and a full member of the Society of Food Hygiene and Technology. Our fully qualified and experienced team are highly experienced in legislation and standards including BRC and SALSA. Find out more about us on our meet the team page. As part of our service our clients can access additional services at reduced rates through ourselves, for example e-learning, thermometers etc.
