Food Safety Policy
Lehmann Food Ingredients Ltd is committed to ensuring the quality of all food ingredients throughout our supply chain. Our products are generally relatively low risk in terms of potential risk for health, microbiological, physical or chemical contamination; however we have taken and will continue to take all necessary steps to ensure food safety.
As a supplier rather than a manufacturer of food ingredients we have a duty to ensure that all food ingredients supplied by us are of the best quality and meet with all relevant food legislation and standards as directed by the U.K and EU Food Standard regulations and agencies.
We will also endeavour to meet individual customers’ requirements for food quality and safety by ensuring that a regular review of customer requirements takes place.
Our principal goals are to achieve and maintain food quality of all products supplied by Lehmann Food Ingredients and to ensure continuous improvements in the service and products that we offer to our customers. All employees of Lehmann Food Ingredients are informed of our policy and the necessary controls, procedures and specifications required, ensuring this policy is implemented at all times.
The management team are responsible for ensuring that this policy is understood, implemented and maintained at all levels and that personnel operate in accordance with the system and procedures described herein. The policy is reviewed by the management team at the management review meeting.
We are conscious that the motivation of our employees is dependent on their training and understanding of the tasks they are expected to perform. It is part of our on-going training programme that this policy is communicated and understood by all our employees.
The Company is committed to the continual improvement of the effectiveness of its company management system. As part of the commitment to continual improvement process it has established a framework for setting and reviewing quality objectives.
The Managing Director has overall responsibility for providing appropriate resources for the implementation and maintenance of the company management systems.
