Haywood & Padgett Achieve Tesco’s Highest Food Manufacturing Standard

The Tesco Food Manufacturing Standard (TFMS) has been developed by a Global Working Group as the standard to outline the requirements to which manufacturers must comply in order to supply Tesco.

It is to ensure Tesco brand products are safe, meet legal requirements, and always meet customer expectations with respect to quality, provenance and responsible sourcing.

The highest level of approval is Blue Status. This highlights that a supplier fully meets expectations and has been found to have no more than 4 minor non-conformances.

Following an intense and exhaustive Audit in June 2016, Haywood & Padgett are delighted to announce that we were awarded Blue Status!

Paul Kidd, Technical and Quality Manager at Haywood & Padgett commented:

“It is testament to the tremendous hard work and dedication that all members of the team employ every day. To achieve Blue Status from an Unannounced Audit is not something that happens because you prepare shortly beforehand. It is a result of the entire business culture being structured towards excellence and everyone believing and working towards this as their main goal”.
