Hain Daniels

With 9 manufacturing sites across the UK, Hain Daniels is one of the country’s leading food manufacturers, making products like puddings, soups, chilled ready meals and spreads. They manufacture products for some of the most recognisable brand names on UK supermarket shelves. Brands like Hartley’s, Linda McCartney, Gayles and Sun Pat, as well as a lot of supermarket own brand produce.

Food production in the UK is strictly regulated and manufacturers have to adhere to the very highest of standards, so it is important to Hain Daniels that the people that help it maintain those standards are trained to the highest standards.

Capable People first started working with the Hain Daniels group in 2008, when we helped a site that specialised in the production of chilled ready meals deliver a series of health & safety awareness briefings for every staff member. That went so well that we delivered some audit training for their quality assurance team. Some visitors from a couple of other sites attended those courses and word started to spread.

Since then we’ve delivered regular lead and internal audit training for Hain Daniels staff on a number of their UK sites where products such as fresh fruit salads, soups and jam are produced. It was interesting work finding out how and where the orange that goes into Jaffa Cakes is made.

Lately we’ve continued our association with Hain Daniels delivering ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 14001:2015 Transition training.
