Good Catering Practice Audits (GCP)
Good Catering Practice (GCP) audits provide you with the foundation, framework and building blocks for a complete food safety management system.
GCP certification covers everything from basic hygiene and food handling procedures to waste management, sanitary facilities and pest control. At Intertek, we can conduct the main GCP audit, provide training and consultancy, pre-audit and follow-up audit services. This is essential for various food establishments from hotels, resorts, restaurants, fast food operations, supermarkets, catering establishments, retail outlets, convenience stores, canteens, and more.
Our GCP programmes offer a structured framework for adopting internationally recognised standards in a combined audit, all of which are implemented according to Codex Alimentarious guidelines.
As part of your GCP programme, we’ll help you to logically and effectively implement the standards appropriate to your business. For example, implementing Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) is mandatory for most of the catering industry, and GMP provides the essential foundation for other important food safety standards, such as HACCP and ISO9001.
GCP certification demonstrates to consumers your commitment to producing safe, quality food. It provides a comprehensive, cost effective approach to developing successful food safety management systems, and ensures your compliance with food safety regulations. GCP also works as a foundation for adopting further certification programmes.
By choosing Intertek as your GCP partner will give you access to world-class expertise and facilities, giving you the experience and global presence to guide you through the entire programme, to meet the challenges and maximise the benefits of GCP certification.
Intertek is a world leading food safety certification body, with accreditation for globally recognised programmes including the Food Safety System Certification (FS22000), British Retail Consortium Food Standard (BRC), International Featured Standards (IFS Food), and Safe Quality Food (SQF). Our expert food safety auditors can work with you to guarantee your products are produced, prepared, packaged, distributed and certified to the highest standards of food safety.
