There’s no denying that 2020 has been an unusual year, and one that has presented an entirely unique set of challenges to people in almost all walks of life and society – whether that be adapting to working from home or doing food shopping solely online, to socially distanced socialising and mask wearing while out and about.

It’s safe to say that it’s been an ‘unprecedented’ experience – and no doubt that’s one word we’ve heard to describe it more times already this year than we’d like. From travel to hospitality, banking to fitness, almost every industry and sector has had to adapt quickly to the ever-changing Covid landscape in order to survive, transforming the way we live and work in almost every conceivable way.

Utilizing Food Safety Audits to Ensure Brand Integrity Through the COVID-19 Pandemic

With waves of COVID-19 outbreaks driving the daily cadence of business around the world, maintaining and building on customer relationships is key for success moving forward into the post-COVID-19 business environment. Throughout the pandemic, audit specifiers have moved through phases of “wait and see” to an “all or nothing” mentality that on-site audits were the only way to assess a supplier, and finally on to the most recent embracing of remote or “virtual” audits.  With the limitations of travel and auditor resource limits predicted to last into early 2021, drivers for a line of sight into food safety practices of manufacturers through a second- or third-party audit remain strong.

A variety of ingredients

Spain is a big country – more than twice the size of the UK – and the foods are every bit as varied as the contrasting landscapes. But there are typical ingredients. Cured ham, olives and olive oil, fresh fish and seafood, pulses, game, sausages, garlic and seasonal vegetables combine to make up the country’s diverse
