Healthy Pet Store Celebrates Food Safety Milestone

A Southampton pet retailer has gone above and beyond on its food safety requirements in a bid to maintain the highest level of food hygiene for cats and dogs across the south.

Leading pet food and accessory supermarket, Healthy Pet Store, has celebrated another milestone after its logistics and warehousing team successfully passed its HACCP training.

HACCP refers to ‘Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points’ and it is essential for all food manufacturers, and some retailers, because it identifies, evaluates and controls potential hazards in the supply chain process.

Managing Director of the Totton based retailer Deborah Burrows said this is a great accolade to hold in pet food retailing because it means the store can prevent, reduce or eliminate any risks associated with handling food and maintain the correct temperatures of all the produce.

Three colleagues from Healthy Pet Store’s logistics team successfully passed their HACCP training; Warehouse Supervisor, Adam Norman, and Warehouse Operatives Will Facciol and Andrew Hills.

Deborah added:

“Ensuring our logistics team is HACCP certified means we maintain the highest level of food safety and quality for our canine and feline consumers.

“Through a number of documented steps and checks, we go above and beyond what is required in our sector and this certification is a unique demonstration of our commitment to excellence in our industry.”

Warehouse Supervisor Adam Norman said: “The HACCP checks we make on a daily, weekly and monthly basis are at the pinnacle of food retailing, nevermind pet food retailing, and this means we can ensure customers feel confident about the safety standards of our range of frozen meals.”
