2. Quality and Sourcing Standards
Davin Foods’ commitment to quality begins with our farm-to-table approach, a core principle that guides our sourcing and procurement processes. We place a strong emphasis on freshness and high-quality produce, which is achieved by sourcing directly from dedicated growers and reputable importers. This direct line from farm to table ensures the freshest ingredients and supports the traceability and authenticity of our produce. Our close relationships with suppliers are fundamental in maintaining the standard of excellence that our clients expect.
In our modern, temperature-controlled factory, quality assurance is not just a process; it’s an ethos. Every step, from receiving raw materials to the final packaging, is meticulously monitored. Our team, skilled in cutting and preparing produce, adheres to exacting standards, ensuring that each product meets our stringent quality criteria and the specific needs of our clients. This attention to detail is vital in delivering products consistently of the highest calibre. This comprehensive approach to quality and safety makes Davin Foods a trusted name among UK restaurant wholesalers.
3. Sustainability and Local Sourcing
At Davin Foods, sustainability and responsible sourcing form the backbone of our operations. In an era where both restaurateurs and customers are increasingly conscious of their environmental impact, our approach to sourcing locally-produced food items resonates strongly with these values. By prioritising local suppliers, we reduce our carbon footprint and support the local farming community, fostering a more sustainable food economy.
Our focus on local sourcing is twofold: it ensures the freshest ingredients for our clients and aligns with the growing demand for traceable, ethically sourced produce. Customers today are more informed and concerned about where their food comes from, and by providing locally sourced ingredients, we meet this demand head-on. This practice is not just about being environmentally responsible; it’s about delivering a fresh, high-quality product that supports the ethos of today’s consumers.
4. Accreditations and Training
At Davin Foods, we recognise the importance of accreditations and staff training in maintaining our high quality and safety standards. We are proud to hold SALSA accreditation, a testament to our commitment to exceptional food safety and quality standards. This accreditation reflects our dedication to providing products that meet and exceed our client’s expectations regarding safety and quality.
In addition to SALSA, we operate to a BRC standard, one of the most recognised benchmarks in the industry. Adhering to BRC standards ensures that our operations align with the best practices in food handling, safety, and quality. This adherence is crucial, as it gives our clients the confidence that the products they receive from us are of the highest possible standard.
Furthermore, the training of our staff is a cornerstone of our operation. All our team members are trained to a minimum of the IEHO Basic Food Hygiene Certificate, ensuring a comprehensive understanding and implementation of food safety practices. We also have in-house COSHH working practices, integral to maintaining a safe working environment.
