Radius Scoops Excellence Award

Radius Scoops Excellence Award

Two Radius Residential Care rest home facilities have scooped ‘Excellence in Food Safety’ awards at the 2009 Food Safety Awards held in Hamilton yesterday.

Radius Maeroa Lodge and Radius St Joans Care Centre were selected from more than 750 food operators to receive the awards that recognize a standard of excellence in management and maintenance of a registered food premises.

The Hamilton City Council Food Safety Awards is an annual event and acknowledges recipients who maintain a standard of excellence in their food premises above the standard required by legislation.

A total of 75 excellence and 60 merit awards were presented to food operators such as takeaway and delicatessens, restaurants, dairies and supermarkets at a ceremony held at the Claudelands events centre.

“Radius are delighted to win the food safety excellence award again. This is the third time that our aged care facilities have won this award and it’s great!” says Steven Heesen, Radius Residential Care Operations Manager.

“We take food safety, presentation and preparation very seriously and our kitchen team is vigilant about food preparation within the rest home and it’s great that this is recognised by way of the awards”.

Food operators are assessed randomly throughout the year by Council food inspectors and evaluated in accordance with their food handling practices, cleanliness, staff training and sanitized work environment.
