FOOD STANDARDS

Food Standards, more commonly known as 'Scores on the Doors', sit under my portfolio. These scores identify the level of hygiene and care taken in the preparation of food in premises that are regularly inspected by environmental health officers.  Each inspection takes several hours, and the results are published nationally.  A score of 5 is the highest that can be awarded while 1 is the lowest.

 

Allied to this is the new requirement for all the contents of any dish to be made known to the customer, so that allergies and adverse reactions can be avoided when purchasing meals and food outside of the home.  This requirement will now form part of the inspection process by EH officers.

 

Interestingly enough, I understand that when insurance is sought for premises providing food, any premises that has a grading less than 3 will be refused.  It is therefore in the best interests of local businesses to work with our environmental health team to raise their level of excellence and food safety.

This initiative is new to the Adur and Worthing District, and indicates those food outlets that provide healthy food options.  In order to achieve this standard, certain criteria need to be met, and those meeting the standard receive positive publicity through the council to encourage more custom.

 

If you would like further information, or to apply for 'eat out eat well' status, why not ring Adur and Worthing Council's Health and Well-Being team on 01273 263000 (and ask).
