Audit Overview

Our audits provide a hands-on review of your dining or manufacturing service operation from loading dock to table top.

Our Certified Free From™  program provides a comprehensive evaluation of all policies and procedures surrounding food allergy safety. From ingredient sourcing to staff training to communication with the consumer, our team ensures diners with food allergy restrictions are being served safely.


Our audits have 3 phases:

Phase 1: An application is reviewed for the content and the extent of the facility’s policies, procedures, training and assessment tools.

Phase 2: Onsite audit confirms the policies, procedures, training and assessment tools are in place and functional in the intended environment.

Phase 3: A certificate and a detailed report is provided that is a summary of the audit including any recommendations for improvement.

  • Certification requires annual review from MenuTrinfo®, LLC.
