"While the extensive use of contractors is integral to the food & drink industry, it also poses a risk. By hiring a contractor to perform construction, maintenance or other work, you are trusting them to act on behalf of your company. Poor standards of workmanship or inadequate health and safety procedures will reflect badly on your own business, not just the contractor’s.
A quote from Mitigating Contractor Risk in the Food and Drink Industry
Problems within your supply chain could have an immediate financial impact on your organisation and cause long-term damage. Possible consequences include loss of revenue, reputational damage, loss of productivity, delayed cash flows and even legal proceedings."
