Cowan Catering Management is a Food Safety Training and Food Safety Auditing company specializing in supporting small to medium sized food businesses. We aim to be a ‘one stop shop’ for all your food safety needs.

We conduct Food Safety Training, and Certification, levels 1,2 and 3, HACCP, & Allergen Awareness to level 2 and basic Health & Safety & Fire Safety. We cover most of the Midlands area.

All of our Food Safety & other Training is conducted at your premises or business, saving you the time and expense of sending staff on an external course. Our prices are comparable with the leading online Food Safety Training providers but in addition we provide reference text books within the price, and can answer any questions on the subject of Food Safety, HACCP , Allergens , Food Poisoning, Food Safety Legislation, Ratings & more.

Training

We can train with the aid of videos produced by the Food Standards Agency if your team may find a written format challenging, and can deliver the training in many languages including Mandarin, Cantonese, Japanese, Urdu, Punjabi & others.

Chinese

We can help with Environmental Health Officer visit preparation & guidance, or maybe how to rectify problems which have been identified by an EHO. A full Food Safety Audit with recommendations will provide a complete review of your Food Hygiene Standards. We can even produce an action plan to help you improve your Food Safety Management Systems, including supplying and assisting with Safer Food Better Business packs. We can also conduct Hygiene Monitoring using scientific measuring equipment with immediate test results, & demonstrate good handwashing techniques to your team using ultra violet light.

Audits

We also supply Food Safety Documentation to help with creating your records of due diligence including HACCP and Allergen documentation, importance evidence of good practice. We also supply Food Safety Equipment,(e.g thermometers, date labels) essential consumables (such as British Standards Sanitizer & hand wash) and a large array of Food Safety Posters & Notices & Signs.

Documentation

It is not currently mandatory to display your Food Standards Hygiene Rating (as it is in Wales or Northern Ireland), but your customers or any member of the public can find out your Hygiene Rating within two minutes. Next year it is proposed to make display of your Hygiene Stars compulsory in England too.

News & Blogs

Don’t leave it until you get a visit from your local council, give us a call & we’ll show you how to get a great Food Hygiene Rating, and train your staff to make sure you keep it. Just having an audit done will help your rating.

Clients we have worked for

Testimonials

  • We recently engaged Cowan Catering for food safety training for our staff. It was very convenient to have the training completed on the premises, not losing the staff for too long.

    We had the certificates on the day and it wasn’t too expensive.
    Rob also did an audit on the food safety procedures as we are due an EHO visit, & pointed out where we need to concentrate. He has revisited to check on progress.
    Overall happy with the service & will use again.

    – Love Chicken – Birmingham

  • After being recommended by a friend we had our staff trained to level 2 food safety by Cowan Catering. It took less than 2 hours & the trainer had a good knowledge of food safety. The videos helped the team to understand the main points & were happy to answer questions.

    – Bengal Massala – Tamworth

  • We were looking for help in preparing for an expected visit from the council & had Cowan Catering suggested by another business owner. It took about an hour and a half of checking everything including asking the staff & checking all the paperwork.

    We got some good tips on the day & were able to get signs, posters & paperwork.

    Hope we get 5 stars after this.

    – Project Pizza – Oldbury

  • I was put on to Rob by a friend because I needed help with my paperwork & staff training. He came to my restaurant & checked it over. Helped me complete the documents & showed me how to keep it up to date. We discussed the main points straight away & the report arrived within a couple of days. We will arrange the staff training shortly. Very helpful.

    – Raj Spice – Coalville
