Hutton's Achieves Important International Standards

Press Release
Thursday, January 31, 2013

International ship supplier, Hutton’s, has achieved important international accreditations to benefit customers and its staff.

UK-based Hutton’s has been awarded International Organisation for Standardisation (ISO) quality management standard ISO9001, environmental management standard ISO14001 and British occupational health and safety standard (OHSAS)18001 after several months of dedicated work to ensure its services and systems meet and exceed global expectations.


Managing Director Alex Taylor said: “These accreditations are a very important endorsement of our approach to ship supply and in particular our customer-focussed approach. I congratulate all our staff on helping Hutton’s to achieve these standards.”


Business auditors recognised Hutton’s high levels of customer satisfaction and retention and the dedication of its highly motivated employees during the assessment process. The environmental award recognised Hutton’s commitment to minimising the impact of its operations on the environment and its ability to comply with environmental regulations. Hutton’s has put in place robust systems to avoid food spoilage and wastage.


Being a maritime company Hutton’s has a keen dedication to health and safety procedures and its comprehensive policies to control health and safety risks, both in the preparation and management of food products and the operation of its warehouses and offices around the UK, led to its earning the OHSAS 18001 award.


Tracey Rowley, Hutton’s Quality, Safety & Environmental Manager said: “It has taken a great deal of time and effort to refine our procedures and assist the auditors in their assessment of Hutton’s and we are pleased to be in the unique position of achieving three important business standards at the same time. With a history dating back almost 200 years, Hutton’s continues to provide the highest standards to our customers.”
