Armidale: top food safety standards
Armidale Dumaresq Council (ADC) is offering a big pat on the back to local food outlets, following the results of this year’s annual health and safety inspection.
ADC environmental health officer Mick Warner said council conducted inspections on local outlets, as part of a food regulation partnership with the NSW food authority.
“The partnership was introduced two years ago, resulting in an increased requirement for compliance with food regulations, with the Council inspecting more than 130 food outlets,” Mr Warner said.
“Unfortunately, the 2009 round of inspections resulted in 13 penalty notices being issued and seven food improvement notices being issued to food businesses locally.
“The penalty notices also resulted in the posting of business details on the NSW Food Authority’s Name and Shame website, which naturally was of great concern to those businesses involved at the time”.
Mr Warner said this year’s inspections had shown ‘vast improvements’.
“There was not one single penalty notice or food improvement notice issued,” he said.
