Eville & Jones provide the UK poultry industry with a significant & increasing number of Plant Inspection Assistants (PIAs) to undertake statutory post-mortem inspection duties on behalf of food business operators (FBOs)
Our PIA services represent a cost-effective, flexible and hassle-free alternative to FBOs employing their own inspection staff. As the poultry industry moves increasingly towards PIA inspection systems our business is geared up to meet the increased demand this will inevitably bring.
We utilise only highly trained professional staff to carry out the duties of Plant Inspection Assistants on behalf of FBOs. These individuals are well trained in the wider aspects of food safety and quality assurance. Our Plant Inspection Assistants are well-placed to take on additional quality assurance duties and add value to the core inspection function.
Whether you want a one-off certification or a long-term, ongoing relationship, we guarantee to beat all our competitors on responsiveness, service delivery and performance, thus maximising value for money.
