About HIQS International


Hygiene International Quality Services was established to protect people and products. This is ensured by the systems, protocols, measurement, auditing and certifying the hygiene and protection practices of establishments.


For many years regulations and protocols have governed the food industry as well as environmental management. A number of standards, guidelines and protocols are available to assist food manufacturers with the implementation, maintenance and improvements of such standards to ensure that they deliver safe products to consumers including HACCP and numerous ISO standards. Further to this a number of third party auditors exist to verify that the systems are in place and the required standards, guidelines and protocols are met and maintained. In truth these systems are primarily concerned with safety while protection requires significantly more than these regulations and systems require.

HIQS recognised a Hygiene gap in the hospitality, personal care, catering, sports and recreation sectors and that to truly protect employees and clientele requires more than what other systems incorporate.

HIQS acknowledges that the traditional view of health and safety essentially revolves around safety compliance to a minimum standard. Protecting people and businesses demands for more and must include Hygiene as well as caring for a sustainable future.
