Food Safety and Health and Safety

Why use In House? Case Studies


As one of the world's largest and most trusted financial services institutions, Prudential takes the safety and well-being of its staff very seriously. Even though they engage the highly respected contract caterers, Compass, to provide hospitality for their staff, they want to ensure that catering operations and their products are safe for all, as part of their due diligence. In House provides that reassurance by undertaking four visits per year of all of their sites. These visits include an annual health and safety audit, an annual food safety audit as well as inspections and BIOSCANNING monitoring visits. The relationship with all parties is excellent and tremendous value is provided for all stakeholders by ensuring an excellence of service that is driven by having a third party oversee standards.


fish! Kitchen Group

Celebrity restaurateur Tony Allan started the fish! empire when he opened his first restaurant fish! in Borough market, the food produce mecca of London, fourteen years ago. Now a thriving restaurant group, with sites that consistently serve around 2000 customers per week, there is a fantastic ethos with regard to safety and hygiene standards. In House is instrumental in ensuring and maintaining these standards, visiting each restaurant four times a year. The visits include food safety and health and safety inspections, along with BIOSCANNING and food sampling. These visits are supplemented with ongoing support, both proactive and reactive giving fish! the reassurance that they are always following best practice in compliance matters.


Merchant Taylors’ School

Merchant Taylors' School is an independent school, which caters for 780 children from 12-18 years old - not to mention 140 staff members. Food safety at this prestigious school is the responsibility of Domestic Bursar, Les Chappell.

The young students are in a 'high risk' group, being much more vulnerable to possible food poisoning. Catering in schools therefore requires the highest standards of food hygiene and health and safety practice and Merchant Taylors' School acknowledges the value of professional specialist support in setting and maintaining standards.

“From the Hazard Analysis prepared by In House, we are made aware of the cleaning procedures and standards required for each area. With In House's specialist support there have been considerable improvements in our hygiene procedures, audits, documentation and staff training. Our staff are kept on their toes by the visits and, when there are queries, In House can provide the answers!”.

In House visits Merchant Taylors' School three times a year, during term time, and monitors the cleaning standards with the unique BIOSCANNING system. At the end of each visit, In House provides the school with a written report on the cleanliness throughout the entire catering operation. The Domestic Bursar is very proud of the catering department with a staff of 24. Regular notices are pinned up around the department so that staff, parents and visitors to the school can see, first hand, that Merchant Taylors' are doing everything possible to ensure the safety of their young charges.


The Old Sessions House

Old Sessions is a fantastic meeting and conference venue in Faringdon, London. Providing hospitality for exacting guests means that their standards are extremely high, including those concerning safety and food hygiene. In House visits Old Sessions three times a year, carrying out inspections and BIOSCANNING, as well as a full food hygiene audit once per year.


St Faith’s School

St Faith’s in Cambridge has outstanding health and safety procedures and practices. The school engaged In House to undertake a SafetyMARK audit which both recognised the exemplary standards the school had already attained prior to inspection as well as provided a plan for continual improvement. SafetyMARK was employed to ‘fine tune’ school’s health and safety management systems by recommending additional controls to demonstrate best practice and also to confirm where standards were already met or exceeded. This provided great reassurance to the Headmaster and the school governors.
