DMG Food Safety Solutions Vision

Derek McGurl
Managing Director

As the MD of DMG Food Safety Solutions, I have a long-term passion for high standards of food safety from all food businesses, regardless of their size. I have worked in the food industry since leaving school, including management with a large high street retailer, specializing in fresh produce and also the meat industry until 1984, at which time I began my career in Environmental Health as a Meat Inspector until the new meat hygiene service came into effect from 1996.

I subsequently joined the Environmental Health food team as a full-time Food Safety Officer and Senior Food Safety Officer the following year. Through gentle persuasion and hard work, I achieved a number of food safety qualifications, leading to my degree in Environmental Health from Leeds Met in 2005.

For 26 years, my main duties at the Local Authorities Environmental Health Department were to carry out food hygiene inspections, including awarding the Food Standards Agency Food Hygiene Awards. Other duties include food complaint investigations, infectious disease control, food, and water sampling. For 10 years, I was in charge of running the Council’s food hygiene training activities. This was the area that I enjoyed the most.

Our E-Learning Courses

We know how hard it can be to arrange external training for staff – it is not always practical to send them on training courses away from work. With this in mind, we can provide quality, approved e-learning courses to suit all food businesses. Your staff can learn at their own pace and in their own time. And when they finish – they can then print off their Certificate as Confirmation of their Food Safety knowledge.

Testimonials from our clients

“Brilliant”, “He put us at ease”, “It was like having one big conversation, it didn’t feel like I was in the classroom, this made it so much easier to learn” “Derek was great, he presented everything well & was clear when talking, he also explained things that we were unsure off!” “It was all relevant and interesting too!”, “Oddly, I quite enjoyed it”. These are the comments left by our staff at Seabreeze fish n chips & the reason why we would recommend Derek to other business every time. Over the years he has provided us with Level 2 food safety & Level 3 Supervising with 100% pass rate. We are more than happy with his knowledge and expertise & with the way he tailors courses so they cover all the points needed but he also details areas that are specific to your business. We have found this invaluable as this gives an extra level of understanding to our staff as it is real and focused. Nicola Atkinson & Kevin Austick Directors
