How often should you audit your food business is a question that is often asked by restaurant owners. The reality is that all businesses should do an audit at least once a year, it doesn’t matter how big or small they are. That being said, many business owners don’t do it, or don’t know how to do it.

If you are in the restaurant industry then you are probably very curious about how to carry out a proper audit. This is probably a problem for you if you want to continue to run a food business. You can’t just say “I’ll look at it when it comes up” and expect that to be enough. Even though you may feel like you don’t need to do an audit on a regular basis, or that it’s not necessary, the bottom line is that you should.
When food businesses fail to audit regularly, they become very vulnerable. They can’t tell for sure what is going on within their operations without having all the data. Without thorough and complete documentation, the owners of these restaurants are putting themselves and their businesses at undue risk. People make mistakes and if they don’t audit their operation then they will never learn from their mistakes. They may find their operation isn’t as good as they thought it was, or their customers aren’t satisfied with the quality of their product and service.
