We enjoyed the lovely hospitality of the Copthorne Tara Hotel at our launch of the Kensington & Chelsea Business Awards Networking event after a masterclass from Food Alert in Food Hygiene.

If you run a food service business, then you’ll understand how crucial it is to maintain excellent standards of food hygiene. With the Food Standards Agency indicating that they may soon make the display of Food Hygiene Ratings in England a legal requirement, it’s never been more important to score highly.

Achieving a high score and maintaining is a challenge in a busy food service business. Food Alert, K&C Business Awards 2018 Winner, provides food hygiene and health & safety support and software to over 1,200 hospitality businesses across the UK. They’ve helped many food service companies to raise their Food Hygiene Ratings.
