The Pasta House Co is to be a full service, family Italian restaurant offering affordable, high quality Italian cuisine inspired by authentic family recipes. The goal is to provide customers with an entire dining experience that exceed's their expectations on every visit. The number of employees are now 21 including management team Risk is inherent in everything The Pasta House Co does. In many of The Pasta House Co’s activities, it is something that we currently manage and control in a variety of ways. However we do not have a formalised, integrated and visible process to identify risk exposures across all our activities and to provide us with an assurance that these exposures are adequately controlled and any gaps are rectified.

Our aim is to achieve best practice in controlling all the risks to which The Pasta House Co is exposed. We will achieve this by identifying our priority exposures, addressing these, incorporating appropriate risk management strategies, risk improvements and contingency planning into our business, monitoring and reviewing ongoing risk to account for changes in our operations and to enable us to make well-informed decisions on risk controls.

As the first step of this process, this document outlines the framework for The Pasta House Co’s risk management. Within this framework, training will provide appropriate tools and practices for the effective management of risks. The next step will be to build on this framework to further develop risk management plans for Business Units and contracted services. Our challenge is to infuse risk management into our culture, our everyday business operations and those of our contractors and business partners.
