  • Working in collaboration with our food consultant in Ireland, Sylvia used her skills and expertise to get our product into the UK market. In addition to the labels, she was also incredibly good at identifying and advising us on various food safety issues such as the permanent quality control of ingredients in order to avoid potential issues.

    The end result is better because of Sylvia’s input thanks to her impressive knowledge, wealth of experience and exceptional level of service. She is also incredibly reliable, professional, kind and easy to communicate with. I would 100% recommend her to anyone related to the food industry.

  • Sylvia conducted a food safety audit and created a customised food safety management system, along with technical HACCP plans that integrated sous vide techniques for our unique dishes and our allergen matrix. Sylvia’s work approach is highly thorough. She demonstrates efficiency, rapid responsiveness and effective communication tailored to our requirements. Her expertise in her field is extensive.

    Finding someone like Sylvia is rare these days, personalised service is fading away. What makes Sylvia special is her personal touch, and that’s the most important thing about her. We got a 5-star food hygiene rating and we couldn’t have done it without her.

  • I felt confident in approaching Sylvia as a Food Hygiene Expert for Idealo, a national money-saving campaign which focussed on food storage and extending the shelf life of common food items to ultimately save money. Sylvia advised on the correct place and way to store.

    I was really impressed with her insights and technical knowledge around food safety and that she had been quoted before in the press. She is utterly amazing whilst being reliable, friendly, experienced, press friendly and responsive. Sylvia is without doubt the most informative food safety expert I have ever worked with on a press campaign.
