Clear Compliance Ltd is a Yorkshire based company run by highly experienced consultant, Catherine Riley. We work with a variety of producers, manufacturers, wholesalers, distributors, retailers, food service companies, agents and brokers, providing a wide range of food safety services and technical support.
Catherine is passionate about food safety, ensuring that her knowledge is imparted in a way that can be understood by all. Catherine loves the challenge each new project brings and will always ensure that each piece of work is tailored to your operation, your process and your products, to meet your business needs in a practical and cost effective way.
Support available from Clear Compliance can be regular assistance and advice, occasional support when required, a one off enquiry or interim support. Whatever your circumstance we can be sure to offer you a solution.
We are continuing to support the food industry during this pandemic. The need for safe food and associated technical requirements have not gone away even though we are in the middle of a national crisis.
You may be busier than ever and need some additional technical resource to get you through these times. I have already carried out a number of remote internal audits for my BRCGS clients and am ready to do more of these, as well as meet any other technical needs you may have.
You may be having quieter times, particularly if you are a food service business or supplying into food service, or may not be working at all. Perhaps now is a good time to do some of those jobs you have had on your list of ‘things to do’ for a while and keep putting off. What about a review of your food safety documentation for example, or maybe the creation of a new food safety system?
Whatever your technical needs – get in touch.
Clear Compliance work closely with you and your business to understand exactly what you need. We can help you to put in place all of the systems and process documentation you need as well as give technical support and guidance. As well as transferring valuable experience and knowledge through our support programmes we can deliver training courses in a variety of subjects.
I am proud to say that I passed my very first SALSA audit in ‘flying colours’ – the exact words from my SALSA auditor. Within the same month I also achieved my organic certification from the Soil Association. These would not have been at all possible without Catherine’s input. She understood my business; her clear step by step guide and training gave me the confidence to go through the whole process and achieve my goals. I am glad to say I will be using her services on an on-going basis.
Catherine always works diligently on her projects. She is very thorough in her approach, brings a lot of experience to the table and collaborates well with our staff.
I found Catherine to be a professional, competent and fun person to work with. Always very well organised, dedicated, knowledgeable and thorough - ensuring client needs were met on time and budget. A pleasure to work with.
I had been told that there were some problems with my labels. I was recommended to Catherine whose calm and professional manner was invaluable. She reviewed my labels for me; making sure I had transferred information correctly from my raw material specifications as well as ensuring their compliance with the current Labelling Regulations. Catherine talked me through the changes I needed to make, as well as sending me a detailed report summarising her findings. I would thoroughly recommend Clear Compliance.
I can recommend Catherine for her excellent assistance in the setting up of our computerised version of BRC 7. It has made our presentation of 7 more professional and above all easier to implement. Catherine has shown us that paperwork can have its fun side.
Catherine came recommended to us by a customer of ours as we were looking for someone to do an internal audit against the BRC Standard for Agents and Brokers. Catherine arrived at our site and within a few moments we felt totally at ease. Catherine was extremely professional in the way she undertook the audit and was firm but fair in the assessment of our evidence. I can say that we had a marked reduction in our minors and a lot of this is thanks to her. I can fully recommend Catherine on her auditing skills.
I just want to say our Auditor Catherine Riley, was, very informative and thorough. Look forward to having her again next year.
Thank you to Catherine for our recent HACCP training course. Catherine made the training engaging and very relevant to our specific production process which made all the difference. She had good knowledge and was able to answer all questions put forward. We feel like it has had a practical and positive impact enabling us to better understand and implement our HACCP system. I would recommend Catherine and use her again in the future. Thank you again.
Have enjoyed the day. Style of training very good for learning. Adaptive for our business.
Great workshop. The delivery style and informal approach allowing discussion and ongoing questions was excellent.
Excellent, informal and incredibly useful.
Healan Ingredients Limited are a leading supplier of gelatines and hydrocolloids to the food and confectionary industry. We worked very closely with Catherine during the lead-up to our initial BRC Audit. Catherine proved to be an invaluable asset to our team during this time. Her experience, knowledge, guidance and communication were first class. Our successfully achievement of BRC AA grade is testament to Catherine’s expertise and inspirational support. The BRC accreditation ensures our customers have full confidence in our food safety program and supply chain management.
Catherine has worked with HFV for the past 10 years, and has provided invaluable input into our BRC food safety management system. She is easy to get on with, and very thorough in her work. Visit reports are sent through promptly. She is always on hand to answer any questions or queries we may have, and feels like part of the team here at HFV.
Catherine Riley has been an immense mentor and supporter, ensuring Henderson’s Relish has been able to introduce and maintain a compliance regime that has gained SALSA certification and maintained it. This has ensured that our iconic heritage brand has maintained long standing, and secured new, distribution channels. Catherine’s knowledge and mentoring style has instilled procedures and practices throughout the workforce that are simple but exacting in trace-ability, manufacturing, storage and distribution. We thank Catherine for her continued involvement and are very pleased to have her on board as a member of our team.
We really found Catherine’s help invaluable. There are so many aspects to cover in order to gain SALSA accreditation, but Catherine’s clear and precise help and advice made each section easy for us all to understand, implement and maintain. She also made sure that our SALSA files are absolutely relevant to our own business practices, which is very important – no generic tables or forms – but clear and precise instructions tailored to fit our business in a practical manner. I know that, without Catherine, we would not have gained our SALSA accreditation. She feels very much part of our Bondgate bakery team and we can’t recommend her highly enough.
Catherine’s support was detailed, well planned & to a scheduled agreed timetable. I can say without reservation that the work carried out exceeded our expectations, and the benefits achieved, not only through achieving our SALSA accreditation, but also the improved work practices, have had a beneficial impact on our company, and continue to do so.
