In House - Your partners in Food Safety and Health and Safety

The In House Ethos...

Our mission is to deliver the best possible service for our partners, by ensuring that we are professional, sensible and proportionate in the way that we practice.

By being your critical friend, we want your organisation to thrive and be as successful as it can, whilst being compliant. We don’t want to just find your issues – we will work hard to provide you with excellent, pragmatic advice together with the resources to sort them out.



Food Safety and Health and Safety

Your sector - Restaurants

Hygiene and safety cannot be ignored in a food business. Keeping your staff and customers safe and happy is essential to the health of your business. Whether you are a single cafe, or a multi-site restaurant group, In House can provide a range of services to help you.

Established in 1991, In House has experience of working with a huge range of food businesses, and we provide tailored solutions to the issues which you face. Our Advisors have worked with individual locations, and chains of restaurants including those serving Italian, Mexican, Japanese, British, Asian, French, seafood and sushi menus.

We are on hand to provide you with support and advice, as well as emergency investigation into customer allegations. We keep you up to date with changing regulations, as and when they happen.

Food Safety

As a food business, you have to comply with food hygiene regulations. Poor food hygiene carries a heavy cost for your organisation – in terms of health, profits, staff and reputation. So how can you be sure your food handling practices and procedures are up to scratch?

In House has a range of services to help you get them right, either by helping you set up your procedures from the start, or by checking that what you are currently doing is correct.

We can:

  • Development of food safety systems (your food safety manual), or reviewing existing ones
  • Audits and inspections
  • Training: On site and public courses, CIEH, HABC and bespoke courses
  • BIOSCANNING hygiene monitoring
  • Emergency food sampling and allegation support
  • On-going support and advice – newsletters and updates

Throughout your service period we’re always on hand to answer any question about food safety or hygiene. Whether you have a minor query or a major crisis, we’re only a phone call or email away.

Health & Safety

The health and safety of everyone who works, visits or even delivers to a food business is paramount. There are obvious risks in catering due to the nature of the work, but health and safety legislation requires your business to assess all the risks.

  • Risk assessments
  • Training – accredited or bespoke – see below
  • Safety Support service
  • Accident investigations
