Provides “no nonsense” practical ideas, advice, guidance and support to help clients comply with food allergen legislation
Jacqui and I have worked closely over the last two years in developing and delivering a Food Allergen Code of Practice for a leading organisation in the food service industry. I have no hesitation in recommending Jacqui as a Food Allergen Management consultant.
Jacqui has a wealth of experience in this field both personally and professionally. She provides “no nonsense” practical ideas, advice, guidance and support to help clients comply with Food Allergen legislation and deliver excellence in their endeavours to provide safe food for people with special dietary requirements. Not only will you be able to do this, you will be able to do it really well and your customers will really appreciate that.
I look forward to working with Jacqui on many more projects in the future.
Tutor and Director
We are proud to have collaborated with Jacqui
Foodesco has worked with Jacqui for almost 10 years, starting with the design consultancy for a new kitchen and servery within the MMU Business School and Student Hub building back in 2008, where we collaborated from an early stage to ensure the offer and consequent designs could compete with the high street. This period started a new direction for foodservice within the university involving a complete overhaul of menus and new employment structure.
Since that initial project it has been very satisfying to visit the university and experience the successful, busy catering outlets.
As a consequence of business growth and other redevelopment projects we are proud to have subsequently collaborated with Jacqui on numerous other projects as she led her team, developing new ideas and through a period of significant change, such that over this time we have come to feel an extended part of that catering team.
Personal commitment and passion
Jacqui and I worked together at Manchester Metropolitan University where she led the development of the University’s catering service. During this time she ensured training and legal compliance across the operation of a £4m business serving a population of over 30,000 staff and students.
Jacqui made what was a compliance requirement for staff allergen training and labelling into a personal crusade. Her mission led to the university achieving several awards and the personal recognition and respect with suppliers and professionals in both the Higher Education Catering and wider catering sectors.
Jacqui has excellent people skills and a great ability to translate compliance matters to the front-line teams through engaging and fun implementation plans that stick.
