FENLANDER: More than 50 food businesses receive five-star rating in council scheme

MORE than 50 Fenland food businesses were presented with awards after gaining top, five-star ratings in Fenland District Council’s “Scores on the Doors” food safety scheme.

Two sets of awards, Elite and Gold, were handed out at a ceremony at Fenland Hall in March. The Elite awards went to premises that retained their five-star status two years running. The Gold ones went to businesses that had improved their performance to up their ratings to five stars.

Twenty-eight premises received the Elite award, with another 25 achieving gold.

The scheme encourages food businesses to improve the quality of their food hygiene standards. Businesses are judged on their standards of hygiene, food handling and food temperature control. The structure and cleanliness of the premises are also taken into account.

Hardeep Kang, senior environmental health officer at FDC, said: “We are very proud of our five-star award winners. The managers and owners of these premises are dedicated to all aspects of food safety and anyone using their food business can be certain that every care has been taken to ensure that the food they are eating is safe.”
