New guidance has been published to businesses on setting up food delivery and takeaway services in response to coronavirus restrictions.
The Chartered Institute of Environmental Health (CIEH), which represents the environmental health sector, said the guidance was aimed at food businesses considering diversifying to provide takeaway delivery services, which includes c-stores with a food-to-go offer.
CIEH’s guidance will support businesses to trade safely, adhere to government advice and restrictions, and keep their staff and customers safe.
Kate Thompson, CIEH Wales Director, said: “In these difficult times I am delighted that we have been able to publish this valuable guidance to food businesses across the country.
“We wholeheartedly support those businesses who are innovating and looking for ways to diversify their services into takeaways and deliveries.
“CIEH has worked collaboratively with our members in the public and private sector to produce this guidance for businesses who may not have previously offered a delivery or takeaway service.
“Following this guidance will help to ensure the food they produce is safe and their staff and customers are protected from the risks posed by the virus.”
