Quality Assurance & Environmental

Quality assurance is key at Andrew Ingredients. It is a way of preventing mistakes or defects in manufactured products and avoiding problems when delivering solutions or services to customers. We continually work on this through gaining various relevant accreditations and certifications.

Andrew Ingredients Ltd is a distributor and does not manufacture any products. We have a portfolio of over a thousand lines manufactured by various producers throughout the UK and Europe. These lines are then delivered to hundreds of customers every week. 

With such a diverse range of products being delivered to such a large number of customers it is impossible to complete specifications and questionnaires in customer specific formats. We continue to use our best endeavours to ensure that every listed product has an up to date specification with all relevant information in line with current legislation.

We also provide our Quality Profile which has been designed to answer the majority of your questions and which is continuously reviewed and updated to ensure it meets your needs as fully as possible.

For all your Quality Assurance and Technical enquiries please contact Eddie McWatters by phone 028 9267 2525 or email eddie@andrewingredients.co.uk
