Professor Alan Reilly, Chief Executive, FSAI, said that vigilance was required in relation to food safety and that standards must not be permitted to slip. He noted that every closure reported damages the relationship between those in the food industry and potential customers.
"Each Closure Order undermines consumer confidence in food safety which not only affects the food business involved, but the industry as a whole.
“It is not acceptable for any food business to potentially put their customers’ health at risk. Every food business should be striving for the high food safety and hygiene standards that the majority of food businesses are committed to achieving on a daily basis."
