Action on food hygiene

PEOPLE will be able to get better information on the standard of food hygiene in shops thanks to a new scheme.

Following a trial, East Dunbartonshisre Council will put the grades it gives businesses following environmental health checks online.

That way, people will be able to see whether food shops have passed or failed.

Kenny Simpson, head of housing and community services, said: “There are approximately 690 food premises operating in East Dunbartonshire and we will be ensuring that consumers are better informed when making choices about the food they purchase or consume.”
