Clevedon And Howick Maintain Food Hygiene Grades


Inspections carried out by Manukau City Council last month have shown Howick and Clevedon Wards maintained a high level of Food Premises “A” Grading. The percentage of A grades for Howick is 86% and for Clevedon 91%

Food hygiene inspections are carried out every six months, with the previous
re-assessment for Clevedon and Howick Ward being in September 2002. The only major change in grading since then was in Howick where there was a reduction in E grades from 12 to 8 (8% to 5%) and Clevedon where A grades increased by 3 (88% to 91%).

Environmental Health Team Leader, Ian Milnes says, “I would like to congratulate all the food premises owners in Clevedon and Howick who received A grades. We are pleased to see that hygiene standards are being maintained. This is a wonderful effort by all concerned, but there is always more work to do.”

Once again the public are being asked to continue to act as watchdogs on hygiene quality by asking to see certificates of premises where they shop or obtain food. Residents are reminded that they can check the Food Grading Certificate List on Council’s website www.manukau.govt.nz, at their local library or by calling Council’s 24x7 Call Centre 2625104.

The certificates are A4 sized, printed in colour and with the rating figure displayed prominently in large print.
