“This is a brilliant result, and it is down to the hard work of the team, and the willingness of our local food businesses to commit their time and energy to the training. Knowing how important food hygiene is to everyone who dines out in the district, we hope to build on this success and help even more food businesses to improve their hygiene standards.”The council was able to go ahead with the training programme after securing more than £36,000 from the Food Standards Agency last year. Around 175 local food businesses signed up to the free training, and were visited by an expert in food safety, who taught them how to improve their food hygiene and safety routines. The council also used Chinese and Bengali speaking coaches to target a number of local Chinese and Asian restaurants, to make sure they were able to take up the training.
