What do our clients say about us?

The team at Hygiene Management Solutions identified our training needs and developed a food safety course specifically for our business at no added cost. The results of this were that staff felt that the training was relevant, were able to immediately put the knowledge gained into practice and it was delivered in a way that made them feel relaxed and valued. A further benefit to the company was that our training time was halved as the course only dealt with relevant information and of course this meant that our training costs were also halved. We pack fruit for all the major supermarket chains in the UK which means that we have tight deadlines to keep, making time very important to us. We could not have asked for a better result and Hygiene Management Solutions really did find the solution to our problem.
