Cornish tea shop celebrates food safety award

A tea shop in the Cornish city of Truro has been honoured with a prestigious food safety award for its exemplary food hygiene training standards and its healthy food offering.

The Tea Shop, situated in Trewithen Gardens near Grampound Road, has been presented with the Gold Level CHEFS Award for offering healthy, locally sourced food and maintaining excellent standards of food hygiene.

The proud owners of the tea shop, Mark and Sonya Rogers, will now be able to display the blue logo in the window of their premises to let customers know that they offer healthy menu options and are committed to delivering a high level of food safety.

Commenting on receiving the award, Mark and Sonya said:

“We would like to say a very big thank you to all our staff in helping us achieve this award and to Cornwall Council for recognising the hard work and ongoing commitment we have pledged to maintaining and continually improving standards.”

This achievement demonstrates the importance of maintaining rigorous food safety standards on all premises serving food. By ensuring all staff undergo food hygiene training and implementing a food safety policy, food-serving premises can be recognised for their commitment to serving healthy, safe and nutritious food.
