Healthier Catering Workshop 2018

 

Catering businesses who have achieved level 4 or 5 of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme and want to stand out from the competition can apply for a new award scheme created by Worcestershire Regulatory Services. If you would like to speak to one of the team please complete our Enquiry Form

The award recognises business owners who offer alternatives such as a choice of portion sizes and healthier menu options to cater for customers who are looking to lead a healthier lifestyle. 

There are two membership levels, with Gold membership available to those who use some locally sourced food and have achieved level 5 of the Food Hygiene Rating Scheme.

Understanding customer needs can have a positive impact on business profits by increasing the customer base, creating a better reputation and differentiating that business from others.

We are not asking businesses to completely change their menus but just offer a few healthier options with advice from us to help you do so.

There is a one off membership fee of £150    *Special introductory price of £125 until 31st March 2019*
Each business will be subject to a review visit every two years at a cost of £50. This is to ensure that each business is still meeting all the criteria of the scheme so it is fair for all members and a review to make sure you getting the most out of your membership and the benefits it brings.

  • An accreditation visit. This involves an assessment of whether you are meeting the criteria of the scheme and support and guidance on what you need to do
  • Your business details will be listed on our website
