Appetite for UK’s food and drink continues to grow

By Mark Buckingham, Recall Consultant

Chocolate, beef, salmon, cheese, wine, whisky, beer and gin… No, they’re not simply items from your favourite menu. In fact, they’re the top food and drink products exported by the UK.

Food Safety First

By Mark Buckingham, Recall Consultant

Contaminated food products are high up on the list of things you don’t want to have in your kitchen, never mind on your plate.
