Nigel has been in the meat industry all of his life. He has worked with the Burrows family since 2000 and has been Technical Manager at C&K Meats since 2010. Working alongside the Food Standards Agency, he is responsible for food safety and hygiene at C&K Meats, ensuring the requirements of the regulations are met.

He ensures that all members of the team have been trained appropriately and the right documentation is in place. Nigel checks that the correct documents are kept up to date and are compliant either as part of an internal audit or as part of an external audit by the British Retail Consortium, for example, who C&K meats are proud to be accredited by.
