A local care home has become the latest Edinburgh business to be presented with a prestigious Eat Safe Award for food safety.

Bupa’s Braid Hills care home was awarded the merit through the Eat Safe scheme, which is run by national agency Food Standards Scotland in conjunction with local Councils and recognises excellence in food hygiene and food safety management across the country.

Awards are only allocated when a business has achieved consistently high food hygiene and training standards beyond those required by law. Consumers can therefore be assured that the food served in premises with the coveted Eat Safe seal of approval is prepared with the utmost care.

Stephen Hagan, Home Manager at Bupa’s Braid Hills care home, said: “Our staff are extremely committed to meeting residents’ nutritional needs and maintaining a high standard of food hygiene and we are thrilled that all our efforts have now been recognised with an Eat Safe Award”.

Environment Convener, Councillor Lesley Hinds, said: “The City of Edinburgh Council is pleased to be able to make this award to Bupa’s Braid Hills care home.

“The award was issued following Council food hygiene inspections which showed the establishment operating to consistently high standards”

“Food hygiene and safety are key issues for food-related businesses such as care homes and the Eat Safe award allows them to show their customers that they are operating to a very high standard indeed.”

Eligible establishments are assessed for the Eat Safe Award as part of scheduled food hygiene inspections carried out by councils.

The Eat Safe scheme was launched in Scotland in 2005. Approximately 90 Edinburgh businesses and other organisations now hold an Eat Safe award.
