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!'
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.
