14th February 2016 Restaurants, pubs and cafes in Luton town centre are being urged to prepare for new food hygiene regulation to ensure the new rules are not too hard to digest.
Food outlets in Wales and Northern Ireland already have to publically display their hygiene ratings and England looks set to follow suit and make this a law later this year.
To prepare businesses for these changes Luton Business Improvement District (BID) has organised a one hour breakfast workshop which will focus on food hygiene and the likely and imminent changes to regulation. This FREE workshop, to be led by Liz Bailey, an expert in Environmental Health from Luton Borough Council, will take place on Tuesday, 8th March from 10.30am to 11.30am.
Fergus McLardy, Luton BID Project Manager, said: “Food hygiene is an absolutely crucial issue. Publicly displayed ratings have a huge impact on business perception and ultimately profitability – and more importantly, food hygiene is a public health matter. There are some fantastic food and drink businesses in Luton town centre, and this event will help make sure they have all the information they need at their fingertips.”
The ‘Improve your Food Hygiene Rating’ session is part of Luton BID’s Spring Programme of FREE business workshops, seminars and events. Business managers and staff across Luton town centre are being encouraged to take advantage of this free programme and book onto all relevant sessions.
