Contract Catering/Foodservice Offerings

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

We support your business across all your needs in a flexible service, up to and including full outsourcing of your safety and quality functions. Our track record of working from farm to fork with foodservice and catering brands in the UK, Europe and globally is proven.

Services range from food, health & safety and fire safety audits, consulting and training, supplier performance management, product assurance and accident reporting through to responsible sourcing, fraud prevention and laboratory sampling.

Our consulting teams offer critical support, providing horizon scanning and insight into emerging issues, and can help you develop appropriate, forward-looking policies and systems to give you competitive differentiation.

Supply chain assurance is a critical issue for all businesses sourcing in the complex global supply network and handling an ever-increasing number of regulatory, ethical and environmental challenges. Along with our responsible sourcing services, our specialist unit, Integra, can provide full traceability of livestock welfare systems back to the farm.

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 Food Standards Agency’s Regulating Our Future strategic project plan around the blueprint for third-party food safety audits and sit on their expert industry advisory panel. For clients that want to benefit from Earned Recognition for their outlets when the new regulation comes into force, NSF is the partner of choice.


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.
