Nando’s have a close working relationship with the team at STS, who have proved to be efficient, effective, reliable and flexible. Nando’s find external audits an invaluable tool for monitoring food safety.
As well as providing a measure of whether company standards are being implemented in each store, STS’ approach helps educate and motivate store managers and their teams to focus of food safety and improve performance. The quarterly summary reports that STS produce track progress, and provide proactive, practical suggestions that have helped Nando’s Senior Management to shape effective strategy.

I have always used STS to ensure that my companies due diligence always met the rules and regulations relating to the laws in regard to high standards of hygiene within the work environment. This support has been valuable over 48 years both as my capacity as catering services manager in the NHS and my commitment to the Hospital Caterers Association. Their audits have maintained high standards admired by Senior Management and the environment health inspections leading to 5 stars on every occasion. I am confident in recommending their services as an essential tool for any caterer.
We have always found STS to be ready to help, professional, flexible, approachable, and most importantly discreet as regards our company issues.
I have no hesitation in recommending STS as they will bring far more to your company than a food safety inspection report, they will bring enthusiasm, professionalism and a wealth of knowledge and always keen to help improve your current hygiene standards.
STS have provided food hygiene consultancy support services to Nuffield Health during the last 7 years. They were initially engaged to support with the development of our food safety policy document along with introduction of various safe systems of work including a bespoke HACCP system and comprehensive audit tool. They have continued to provide external audit checks to the hospitals and we have always found their auditors both friendly and professional. STS continue to provide an excellent service and we would have no hesitation in recommending their services to others.
They conduct an annual food safety audit at all our care homes and residential break centres. These provide us with third party assurance that our internal HACCP processes are operating effectively. The online web-based reporting system enables local managers to update actions as they are implemented. STS have been happy to work with us amending the content of the audit to reflect recent changes made in our HACCP processes.

Bagel Factory has been working with STS for 3.5 years now with excellent results in food safety management. I find STS to be very reliable, helpful, effective and professional to suit our needs as a small food business operator. I guess we have found the perfect partner in STS!
Our staff that attended your training sessions were very impressed with your courses overall and very much enjoyed the sessions. The presentation was informative and interesting and there was lots of useful discussion around many of the different topics, including people’s own experiences and questions which helped reinforce their understanding. This also helped our employee’s put the subject matter into context in an informal and relaxed forum which was very conducive to learning. This was especially important for us given at least half of each group did not speak English as their first language.
Your trainer was excellent. He was amiable, friendly and approachable. He ensured there were plenty of opportunities for staff to ask questions, start discussions and re-cap on areas that were not familiar to them. His approach and manner were highly professional and he made the sessions interesting and interactive. I would definitely use STS again in the future for further courses.
In addition, the STS staff that assisted arranging the courses in the first place were also extremely helpful and friendly, making STS a great company to deal with.
