Eat Safe Award Presented To North Kessock Tearoom

Issued: 20 Mar 2007

The White Cottage Tearoom in North Kessock is one of an increasing number of premises in the Highlands and indeed Scotland to be awarded an Eat Safe Award after demonstrating that its standards of food hygiene and food safety management are well above that required by legislation.

Local Councillor Isobel McCallum said: It is a pleasure to reward a business which takes the safety and comfort of their customers seriously and carries out their work with such enthusiasm and dedication.

The Tearoom is situated on the Main Street in North Kessock and provides home baking and light meals in an enviable situation with magnificent views across the Beauly Firth to Inverness. Proprietors Joan MacLellan and Ian Craigen are now entitled to display their certificate and the Eat safe logo in their premises.

They said: "We were delighted when, on a routine visit, Environmental Health Officer Jessica Butler said that we would be recommended for the eat safe award and it is our great pleasure to accept this award knowing that our hard work and attention to detail by ourselves and members of staff has paid off.

"We are now in our 5th year of trading and so it is especially rewarding to be recognised for all that needs to be done behind the scenes which the customer does not see !"

The Eat Safe scheme is administered by local Environmental Health Services in conjunction with the Food Standards Agency in Scotland. Eligible establishments can be assessed for the Award as part of scheduled Food Hygiene Inspections carried out by Environmental Health services. If you are a catering business that feels its standards are high enough, why not approach your food inspector during the next scheduled inspection and ask for advice?
