Use our reporting platform KernelFood to monitor supplier performance and drive quality throughout your business

Flexible Inspection Programmes That Deliver Confidence

The Service

We carry out scheduled inspections on products specified by you. Those inspections are conducted at a convenient location anywhere in the UK or Ireland, using your purchase specifications to determine product performance.

We assess all of the expected elements of fresh food quality, such as freshness, weight, damage, cutting standards, fat content and more. The results are recorded in detail, with photographs taken whenever necessary.

The data is provided in email reports, and via our in-house reporting platform KernelFood.

The Results

The inspection programmes are designed to promote measurable improvements in food quality, reducing wastage from poor quality fresh food.

The data is impartial, can be used to set supplier KPIs, and shared around your business and with suppliers to foster a quality-orientated culture.

Identifying trends in quality allows targeted improvements to be made, reducing the time you have to spend managing poor quality.
