The health of our nation is always on the agenda of news outlets, so it’s no surprise that eggs and food safety procedures have been prominent in the media recently. It’s of ongoing importance that best practice and stringent measures in food safety are at the forefront of the food industry.

One way caterers can feel confident in the product they serve, is to research and ensure food comes from reputable sources where stringent food safety protocols are in place.

Sunny Queen prides itself on its Quality Assurance and food safety programs, and recommends that customers ask their suppliers detailed questions about their QA protocols. Sanitation and cleaning procedures, pest control programs, precise cooking protocols, microbiological testing and traceability are just some of the quality protocols Sunny Queen has in place as part of its Quality Management System.
