Solutions for Hospitality

Intertek provides a dedicated service to the hospitality industry and has a worldwide reputation for offering quality and value. Through our global experience in analysis, inspections, audits, training and consulting, you can depend on our support wherever and whenever you need us.

The hospitality industry faces new and diverse challenges each day. You need to ensure you stay ahead of the local competition and deliver a premium service to your customers whilst maintaining the reputation of your large global brand to guarantee customer satisfaction and repeat business.

Customers have become more aware of the importance of sustainability, environmental protection, quality of service and ingredients, nutritional value, origin and traceability.

Intertek provides a comprehensive hospitality service so that you can ensure that you meet these rising expectations. From auditing, certification and inspection through to testing and training - we have a tailored solution for you. We can also help you to become recognised for your hygiene practices with the Intertek Food Hygiene Control Programme which is a global consistency standard for both domestic and international brands.


To help promote the hygiene standards of your restaurants and to differentiate your quality proposition, Intertek has developed a Food Hygiene Control Programme to help not only manage the risk of food related incidents but promote customer care through best practices.

The Intertek Food Hygiene Control Programme is a global consistency standard for both domestic and international brands, providing consumers with a meaningful comparison, by an independent food safety auditor, to check food premises are compliant with food hygiene best practices.

We have the knowledge, experience and global presence to support and guide you through the entire audit and certification process, helping you to meet any challenges and maximise the benefits. 

We can assist with product certification, certification systems, social and environmental responsibility, 2nd party audits and audits to the point of sale.

As a reliable supplier, we identify potential challenges at the source, before they become a problem. 

We carry out inspections of construction, pre-loading and loading, we track unloading and weighing, and also monitor the loading/unloading process.

Intertek uses the latest methods and technology to identify risk factors, improve quality and efficiency, and add value to the market. As your testing partner, we provide fast turnaround times and accurate results that demonstrate compliance with legal requirements.

We can assist with microbiological analysis, nutritional analysis, analysis of contaminants, meat species identification, and environmental testing.

Our services cover label validation including layout, language changes and updates on legal claims as well as a complete analysis of the nutritional aspects, in order to support the global commercialisation of the product.

In order to help achieve the highest levels of safety and quality, Intertek analyses not only food, but also offers migration testing of packaging, utensils, food processing equipment services, and many other materials intended to come into contact with food.

Similarly, we analyse industrial food equipment, offering security and certification testing according to national and international standards.

We provide personalised training programmes which address a wide range of topics and can be made available online, onsite, or at any Intertek location around the world. 

The courses operate at the forefront of local and international developments, and include legal compliance requirements for our customers, as well as the best practices in manufacturing. Our experts therefore have the necessary experience to ensure that key personnel and their management teams are updated on major compliance issues, techniques, skills and more.
