Three outstanding local businesses have been awarded the highest honours in Council’s 5 Star Food Hygiene Assessment (FHA) program.
Whitehorse mayor Councillor Denise Massoud said competition for top honours was tough and the winners had reason to be proud of their establishment and of staff dedicated to best practice in food safety.
“All food businesses in Whitehorse are regularly inspected by Council’s Environmental Health Officers for cleanliness and maintenance of premises, personal hygiene, food processing and handling, food storage conditions and record keeping,” Cr Massoud said.
The aim of the FHA program and rating system is to improve the safety of food being sold in the municipality through reward and recognition as well as keeping the community informed about the standard of food safety in Whitehorse.
“The Food Businesses of the Year demonstrated excellent results in food hygiene and safety, and have set a fabulous example for other businesses in Whitehorse. Such a great result requires skills and knowledge in all aspects of food handling and hygiene and a real commitment to staff training. Congratulations!” Cr Massoud said.
