Four Cambuslang cooks have been honoured with a top county safety award.
Anne Goldie, a facilities services advisor with the council, Linda McCarrol of West Coats Primary School, Susan Crossan of Hallside Primary School and Alison Kelso, also a facilities services advisor with the council, have all scooped the Food Standards Agency’s Eat Safe food hygiene award.
The Food Standards Agency grants Eat Safe awards to commercial kitchens and catering establishments - whether a snack bar, a major hotel or a school catering unit - which prepare food in conditions which exceed those required by legislation.
The main aim of the scheme is to provide an incentive to caterers to strive for food hygiene and food safety management standards beyond those required by law.
The scheme was launched a few years ago by the Food Standards Agency to improve public confidence and consumer choice in catering establishments throughout Scotland and there are now a number of premises within South Lanarkshire who have obtained the award.
The school catering units were recommended to the Food Standards Agency for the Eat Safe award by South Lanarkshire Council’s environmental health team which monitors and inspects catering establishments to ensure they are safe and hygienic to dine in.
Stephen Kelly, head of facilites, waste and ground services said: “I am delighted that a further 27 of our primary and secondary school catering units have gained this award. They operate to a very high standard of hygiene and this award is indeed well deserved.”
