My BRCGS history

My journey with BRCGS started in 2005 when implementing the BRC Food Safety Standard Issue 3 for a bakery in Co. Kerry. Once certification for the bakery was achieved, I became a freelance BRC consultant and BRC certification auditor.

Today I have 13 years BRCGS Lead Auditor experience under my belt. In the past years I audited across Europe. I conducted BRCGS fish category audits in Iceland and found myself at -21°C in the middle of Finland in January. Thank God the bakery I audited was cosy and warm!

Now I mostly provide my existing years of BRCGS experience to Irish businesses. Occasionally I travel to the UK or Germany (bilingual audits) and conduct BRCGS audits to various BRCGS standards.

I am an approved BRCGS consultant and can count myself to a selected group of BRCGS consultants worldwide.
