Earlsferry House Care Home has had a taste of success after Fife Council’s Protective Services presented it with the Food Standards Agency’s Eat Safe Award.
The home, part of the Four Seasons group, was nominated for the award following a recent routine food safety inspection by Sarah Joselyn, environmental health officer from Fife Council’s protective services.
The award was presented by Roy Stewart, senior manager protective services, to Linda Lee, home manager.
Roy said: “I am pleased to present this award to Earlsferry House. The Eat Safe award scheme provides an incentive for food businesses to strive for standards beyond those required by law and is a recognised and well publicised sign of excellence in standards of food hygiene. This award will give Earlsferry House’s residents confidence in the catering provided at the Home.”
Linda praised the staff: “Along with Four Seasons Health Care, I am very proud of our catering team and the high standards they have achieved.”
The Eat Safe award scheme launched by the food Standards Agency in Scotland during January 2005 is designed to promote excellence in food hygiene and improve public confidence and consumer choice.
