Eurobodalla’s food businesses continue to provide high level of compliance to food safety standards


Eurobodalla’s local food businesses have once again proved they’re the cream of the crop when it comes to Council's food safety inspection program continuing to provide a high level of compliance to food safety standards over the past year.

Council carried out 375 inspections throughout the year and only six premises required reinspections for food safety improvements.

Council’s Environmental Health and Compliance Coordinator Nathan Ladmore said food businesses were to be congratulated on the results.

“Our cafes, restaurants, takeaways, school canteens and food vans are doing a great job, and consumers can have a high level of confidence that food is safe to eat when dining out,” he said.

“Council’s inspection program takes a collaborative approach with businesses where we give practical advice on safe food handling where we can. This approach means that in most cases any unsafe practices are rectified at the time of the inspection.

“We also reward those businesses with a proven track record of excellent food handling practices by reducing their inspections to once per year as part of our risk-based inspection program.”

Eurobodalla Council has conducted a food inspection program in partnership with the NSW Food Authority since 2009. The program is undertaken to ensure that food for sale is safe for consumption and consumers can have confidence in purchasing food in Eurobodalla.
