Based in the heart of London, Harrods is perhaps the most iconic and exclusive department store in the world. Occupying a 5-acre (20,000 m2) site with over one million square feet (90,000 m2) of selling space in over 330 departments, it is the biggest department store in Europe. With 26 different food outlets, selling over 2500 products and employing over 600 staff on food and beverage alone.
Delegates will have the opportunity to witness first-hand how compliance is managed and food safety standards are maintained in such a varied and fast moving environment. The visit, led by the Head of Food Safety (tbc) at Harrods will incorporate a tour of selected food outlets, include a discussion on food safety and food standards compliance and will demonstrate to delegates the importance of building relationships between the business, local authority and national regulatory agencies.
The visit will begin before the store officially opens so be prepared for an early start (c. 8am).
