Examples of case studies include development of a new traceability system for a business which, after implementation, enabled it to move from an amber rated Tesco audit to green.

Technical Systems

Establishment of a technical system for a produce importer which was fully compliant to BRC standard resulting in an audit score of 2 minor non-conformances.


Mentoring a new QA Manager and a hygiene team at a chilled bread site to improve technical skills and communication at work. The site moved from a green to a blue Tesco audit status.

Barbara came recommended by colleagues at various levels and her reputation for being thorough and fair was soon apparent.

A rigorous independent review by a professional with high standards was the most valuable thing about having her review our systems against customer and BRC standards, and was what I was looking for to help assist our business progress in its performance. In addition, I enjoy working with Barbara because of her straight talking approach, willingness to work hard with us and her ability to earn trust through maintaining professionalism and integrity at all times.

Barbara is in demand because she is easy to work with and always gives 100%. She is friendly, professional, driven and importantly, cares about helping you get the improvements you want.
