A year after signing with Croner, Gerry McCorriston, Culinary Director at Jeanie Marshal Foods explains that partnership is the key to success.

Based in Crawley, West Sussex, Jeanie Marshal Foods is an artisan kitchen that has been delivering specialised food products to customers large and small for over twenty years.

“Our mission is to build on the success we have had over the years, we want to grow and be leaders in our sector,“ says Gerry, “We take great pride in working with our customers old and new to provide a service and products that meet their brief, budget, expectations and deliverables!”

This artisan food supplier cares not only about their products, but their people and how they do business. Their purpose-built facility is HACCP compliant and has a European Kite Licence. They recently achieved safe and local supplier accreditation and have a five-star rating from the local authority. They actively encourage the development of staff and several of their directors are asked to invigilate City and Guilds examinations for Westminster College.

So why did they seek the support of an external company?

Gerry says: “The challenges were few; we based our decision on wanting to be fully compliant with current employment and health & safety law and providing the best working practices we could. “Croner provided the service we were looking for at a competitive rate, but also gave us the feeling of working in partnership, rather than just supplying a service.”

Croner Simplifies

Jeanie Marshal Foods subscribes to Croner Simplify, a service which combines online tools and information with 24/7 advice and support in the areas of employment law and health & safety. Of the service Gerry states: “Croner has helped our business by adding security to the decisions we make internally, allowing us to run our business with more confidence and direction than we did before.” And partnerships are key to the success of this relationship, as Gerry explains: “We feel the service is a partnership, rather than just a service provider. So far Croner have advised, assisted and supported us in the decisions we have wanted and need to do in our business.”
