SQUEAKY clean food busi­nesses in the Western Isles will be re­warded for go­ing over and above nor­mal hy­giene stan­dards.

Comhairle nan Eilean Siar has of­fered the Eat Safe award to any es­tab­lish­ments selling food di­rectly to cus­tomers.

To qual­ify, busi­nesses must go over and above the food hy­giene and safe man­age­ment stan­dards re­quired by law.

Nor­man Macleod, chair­man of the comhairle’s of en­vi­ron­ment and pro­tec­tive ser­vices, said: ‘The Eat Safe award is only pre­sented to busi­nesses that have achieved hy­giene stan­dards be­yond those re­quired by law, so their com­mit­ment has to be com­mended. I would en­cour­age all busi­nesses within the Outer He­brides to aim for this award as it pro­vides them with a valu­able tool to re­as­sure their cus­tomers of a con­tin­u­ing com­mit­ment to pro­duce food safely.’
