Food wholesaler R D Johns has gained a highly regarded food safety and hygiene certification for its Kingsteignton depot.

STS accreditation is awarded to organisations that meet stringent food safety and hygiene standards. It ensures a company consistently demonstrates best practices in food safety from storage and handling to transportation and distribution.

STS certification is often required for companies to supply hospitals, schools and major food retailers.

‘In the world of food distribution and supply, ensuring the highest standards of safety and hygiene is paramount. This achievement underscores the company’s commitment to excellence,’ an R D Johns spokesperson said.
