Council is participating in the NSW Food Authority’s Scores on Doors Program.
The aim of the program is to enable participating food businesses that comply with food safety legislation to show off their good food safety record.
Under the program, Council officers use a standardised checklist to rate businesses during routine food safety inspections and businesses that receive a good, very good or excellent rating are issued a certificate with a complementary star rating to display on their premises.
The program is open to businesses processing and selling potentially hazardous food for immediate consumption, including restaurants, cafes, takeaway food shops, bakeries, hotels and clubs.
Eligible businesses no longer need to complete an Agreement Form and Council’s Environmental Health Officers can issue these certificates, where relevant, after a primary inspection.
Further information about Scores on Doors program is available from the NSW Food Authority website.
