What do our clients say about us?

As one of the largest visitor attractions in Kent we have to ensure that our staff are trained to the highest level so that we feel confident that they have the ability to consistently produce safe food to our clients. We asked Hygiene Management Solutions to help us as we had been recommended by another company. We started with a foundation course which the staff really enjoyed and as a result we trained our supervisors at intermediate level and our managers to advanced level. The managers, including myself, had to do two written assignments and throughout the process Dennis supported us and got us through it. You will not find a better trainer.
