Why have an independent audit performed? There are several reasons:
- International retail chains request performance of internal audits within provision of safety, quality and correct labelling of their private labels. It is a retail chain's interest to ensure product quality for their customers.
- The Czech Agriculture and Food Inspection Authority, Czech Trade Inspection Authority, Hygiene Service and other authorities control adherence to legally requested site standards, product labelling, freshness of goods, hygiene of employees, occurrence of rodent and many other factors. Major findings can lead to penalties, negative media reactions but particularly to preferring competitors. How to prevent such difficulties? The best way is to work on improvement of the quality standards of your site actively and in the long term.
In QSL, we carry out independent internal audits of stores or production, the audits warn you about all even less significant deficiencies and suggest you a way to remedy before they cause you any difficulties.
