Star treat­ment for eater­ies

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

DE­CID­ING where to eat is set to be­come eas­ier with the launch of Town of Clare­mont’s new Scores on Doors food safety pro­gram.

The new pro­gram, to be launched tonight, will see busi­nesses in Clare­mont dis­play a star rat­ing fol­low­ing as­sess­ment by the Town’s En­vi­ron­men­tal Health Of­fi­cers.

Town of Clare­mont Mayor Jock Barker said he was pleased to launch the new Scores on Doors pro­gram, which is one of the first in the state.

“Clare­mont has a great food of­fer­ing, whether it is fine din­ing, a ca­sual bite or take­away,” he said.

“The new Scores on Doors pro­gram pro­motes and cel­e­brates the Clare­mont busi­nesses that have out­stand­ing food safety and hy­giene.”

The pro­gram is based on the unan­nounced, manda­tory food in­spec­tions that are be­ing car­ried out by Town of Clare­mont.

It will in­clude any busi­nesses serv­ing food, such as restau­rants, pubs, bars, cafes and take­away out­lets. En­vi­ron­men­tal health of­fi­cers ex­am­ine how food is stored, pre­pared, cooked and served, as well as staff hy­giene and knowl­edge, clean­ing, sani­ti­sa­tion and pest con­trol.

Fol­low­ing in­spec­tion, busi­nesses scor­ing three stars or more will be of­fered a cer­tifi­cate and win­dow sticker to dis­play to cus­tomers.

The rat­ings will also be avail­able to view on the Town of Clare­mont web­site.
