The Isle of Barra Beach Hotel have recently received an EatSafe Award. The Eat Safe Award is granted by the Environmental Health Service of Comhairle nan Eilean Siar in conjunction with Food Standards Scotland. The award is available to all establishments selling food directly to consumers. The main aim of the scheme is to provide an incentive to food businesses to strive for food hygiene and food safety management standards beyond those required by law. It also helps consumers make informed choices about where to eat out by providing a recognisable 'sign' of excellence in standards of food hygiene.
Councillor Donald Manford was delighted to hand over the award on behalf of the Comhairle.
Councillor Manford said “The Eat Safe award is presented only to businesses that have achieved hygiene standards beyond the legal requirements and their commitment has to be commended. I encourage all businesses within the Outer Hebrides to aim for this award. It is provides valuable information to their customers of commitment to produce food safely.”
