Povey’s Oatcakes run by Alex Povey is based in Staffordshire. A major retailer demanded BRCGS Accreditation as an entry to business. Alex being an entrepreneur, took this as an opportunity to expand his business. Our work with Alex and his team began by carrying out a Gap Analysis and guidance on what they needed to do in order to achieve the standard. From then, our involvement was to mentor and manage the initial systems. We started on 1st July 2017 and Povey’s achieved and passed in November 2017!
Alex really embraced a food safety culture which enabled them to pass the audit so quickly. Brian Humphreys, our Head Consultant, then went on to mentor the full team resulting in a pass in their 2nd but unannounced audit 10 months later. After continued support and guidance Poveys Oatcakes have achieved their 3rd AA rating in an unannounced BRCGS Food version 8 audit.
