EatSafe and Healthy Living award scheme
The EatSafe Award provides an incentive to food businesses to strive for food hygiene and food safety management standards beyond those required by law.
For consumers, it provides a recognisable sign of excellence in standards of food hygiene.
Eligible establishments are assessed for the award as part of scheduled food hygiene inspections, carried out by Local Authority Environmental Health Services, who issue Eat Safe Award certificates. The scope of the Award covers all establishments selling food directly to consumers.
The healthyliving award has been designed to make it easier for consumers to eat healthier food whenever eating out. Award holders across Scotland, such as cafes, sandwich shops, workplace restaurants, colleges and other places where meals and snacks are purchased are making changes to the way they prepare food - to ensure its done with consumer health in mind.
Only places that are committed to preparing and serving food according the award conditions can display the healthyliving award logo and certificate. This means that healthier ingredients and cooking methods are used to keep salt, sugar and fat to a minimum and options such as water, low fat diary products and fruit and vegetables are always available.
