Businesses can now pay EDDC for “consultancy” for fast-track food hygeine certificates

Another conflict of interest? Gamekeeper AND poacher?

“Our commercial premises team will explore the feasibility of offering a range of business advice and support services to local businesses. We will offer an enhanced food hygiene registration scheme to those businesses who would like consultancy time specifically dedicated to helping them improve their regulatory compliance generally and their food hygiene rating score in particular. We will market support package options (to include training, coaching and auditing) to newly registered businesses this year.”
