Emergency FSA audits rate 2 Sisters factories as ‘Good’ and ‘Generally Satisfactory’

Following a series of allegations around campylobacter failings reported in The Guardian newspaper, 2 Sisters Food Group has welcomed the outcome of emergency audits carried out by the Food Standards Agency at two of its chicken processing sites.

Both sites – at Scunthorpe and Llangefni – have passed the audit processes which were carried out on 25th July. Scunthorpe has been rated as ‘Good’ and Llangefni as ‘Generally Satisfactory’. 2 Sisters has consistently denied the allegations saying they were untrue, misleading and inaccurate.

The FSA has recently introduced a new, more thorough audit process – with four rating outcomes – Good, Generally Satisfactory, Improvement Necessary, and Urgent Improvement Necessary.

Ranjit Singh, CEO of 2 Sisters Food Group, said: “We welcomed these audits and we are pleased the FSA has worked with typical rigour and thoroughness. We are satisfied with their findings which show that no legislative compliance issues were raised.

“However, we must not be complacent. We operate our business in an environment of continual improvement and we will be carrying on with that to ensure we produce first-class British products for all of our customers.

“We will continue to be at the forefront of our sector by investing in our sites and leading from the front in tackling key challenges to our industry like campylobacter.”
