Group Five-Star Hygiene Rating Achievement for Avery Healthcare
Avery Healthcare is delighted to share that we have achieved a five-star rating from the Food Standards Agency across all our care home locations for the second time.
Environmental Health Officers from the Food Standards Agency are responsible for carrying out measures for protecting public health and providing support for health and safety. Based purely on unannounced visits, a five-star award from Environmental Health is the highest achievable level.
In recent years, Avery has significantly invested in high-quality commercial kitchens and recruited skilled professional staff who are supported and encouraged to continue their development and training. Led by Head of Culinary and Hospitality Simon Lawrence and Regional Culinary Manager Gareth Cartledge, a first-class hygiene and food safety culture has been instilled alongside a benchmark for high-quality dining within the care sector.
Head of Culinary and Hospitality, Simon Lawrence, said: “It is paramount that a consistently high level of food hygiene and safety is maintained when working alongside our residents. At Avery, this is delivered through leadership and teamwork. Our Culinary Team have done a great job to achieve this, and we are immensely proud of them all.”
