Local EatSafe award recipients

About the Award

The Eat Safe award was devised in Northern Ireland and began in June 2003. It was subsequently launched in Scotland in January 2005.

The main aim of the scheme is to provide an incentive to caterers to strive for food hygiene and food safety excellence by effectively implementing management standards beyond those required by law. The award certificates, which are placed in premises, also help consumers make informed choices about where to eat out by providing a recognisable 'sign' of excellence in standards of food hygiene. Updates are also given to caterers and other stakeholders through an 'Eat Safe Now!' newsletter.

Eat Safe awards are administered in South Ayrshire by the Council's Environmental Health Services in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency Scotland. Eat Safe is proving extremely successful as the number of catering establishments meeting the award criteria continues to grow.
