As Dundee experiences an increasing number of events in the city, the council Food Safety Team are making important contributions to ensuring the safe running of these occasions.

 The Food Safety team aim to prevent food poisoning and illness by helping ensure that food and drink intended for sale is done so without posing any risk to the consumer.

Community Safety and Public Protection Committee Councillor Alan Ross said: “The food safety team carry out a hugely important role in the city by promoting high standards of food safety and food hygiene.

“Food Safety is largely behind the scenes work, and it’s important to recognise the hard work the team have put in over the past year to ensure the new and existing events in Dundee have gone ahead to pose no threat to human consumption.

“Over 100,000 people attended various evens last year including the Slessor Gardens Music Festivals, Carnival 56 and Christmas Night Lights, in order for these to be successful it required a significant amount of hard work and dedication by the team.

“As the council set out our vision and priorities for the coming years, it’s important that we all work together to deliver a vibrant and attractive city without risk to the health and safety of those enjoying it.”

The Community Safety and Public Protection Committee will be informed of the revised Food Safety Service Plan on Monday (October 30).
