Casual Dining & Fast Food Restaurant Services

NSF offers a value-for money, efficient service, giving you more for less.

We support your business with a flexible service to fulfil all your needs, up to and including full outsourcing of your safety and quality. We have a proven track record as the one-stop experts for safety and quality for high street casual dining and quick service brands, small and large, in the UK.

Our expertise in applying standards consistently across multiple outlet chains, together with our technical services, help you to deliver your brand values in the outlet -- providing a high quality and consistent customer experience.

We work with both brand and franchise owners on services ranging from food, health & safety and fire safety compliance audits, supply chain performance, product traceability, quality and consistency through to menu specifications and claims and food equipment compliance.

Food Hygiene Rating Scheme (FHRS)

One of our core services is improving your FHRS scores though our audit programmes, supported by consulting, training, coaching, policy and systems development.

Nearly half of our current compliance audits include an FHRS-benchmarked assessment, allowing you to predict your score levels.

Our visits can include coaching and advisory elements which have been proven to raise scores consistently to achieve target standards across large multi-site operations.

We are working closely with the FSA’s 'Regulating Our Future' strategic project plan around the blueprint for third-party food safety audits and sit on their expert industry advisory panel. NSF can help clients that want to benefit from Earned Recognition for their outlets when the new regulation comes into force.


We place the highest value on our integrity, quality and consistency of delivery, having a unique Global Integrity Centre of Excellence that ensures the reliability, consistency and integrity of NSF operations.

Innovation through technology, horizon scanning and a deep understanding of business risk management challenges are hallmarks of our service. Our IT platform, NSF Connect, gives you full business and supply chain transparency and control through a user-friendly dashboard interface.
