A BIG welcome back to indoor hospitality
Lisburn Chamber is delighted to see its hospitality members welcome customers indoor from Monday 24th May
Thanks to the LCCC Business Solutions team for collating the following guidance from the Food Standards Agency.
To support the hospitality sector during this reopening phase, the FSA has issued refreshed guidance aimed to support food businesses to prioritise food safety as well as customer and staff wellbeing, when restarting operations.
See the following guidance:
- Adapting restaurants and food delivery during COVID-19
- Reopening checklist for food businesses during COVID-19
- Changing your business model during COVID-19
The guidance is to help employers, employees and the self-employed understand how to work safely during the pandemic and how to prioritise food hygiene and food safety when reopening after a period of closure.
Food businesses can download the reopening checklist to work through the checks they should make when restarting operations, and to record progress when reviewing their processes. Tourism Northern Ireland guidance incorporates these assets.
Tips on practical changes that different types of businesses can make to offer healthier choices are outlined in this healthier catering guidance.
As the NI Executive’s roadmap progresses towards the reopening of indoor hospitality venues and the eventual lifting of all legal limits on social contact, the above guidance will help businesses stay safe, get compliant and remain confident in being able to do the right thing.
