Braemount Care Home in Paisley is the latest Renfrewshire business to be presented with a prestigious Eat Safe Award for food safety.
The Eat Safe scheme is run by national agency Food Standards Scotland and recognises excellence in food hygiene and food safety management. Awards are only made when a business has achieved consistently high food hygiene and training standards beyond those required by law.
Consumers can be assured that the food served in awarded premises is prepared with the utmost care.
Councillor Eddie Devine, Convener of Renfrewshire Council’s Environment Policy Board, said
“Renfrewshire Council is delighted to be able to make this award to Braemount care Home.
“It comes following a number of consistently high inspections of the establishment carried out by council food enforcement officers.
“Food hygiene and safety are key issues for food-related businesses such as care homes.
“The Eat Safe award allows them to show their customers that they are operating to a very high standard indeed.”
Braemount Care Home manager, Kate McConville said:
“The team at Braemount Care Home is delighted to receive this award. Our staff make great efforts to meet residents nutritional needs and maintain a high standard of food hygiene”.
Eligible establishments are assessed for the Eat Safe Award as part of scheduled food hygiene inspections carried out by councils.
Since the Eat Safe scheme launched in Scotland in 2005, 11 Renfrewshire businesses and other organisations have received the award.
