CIEH has published new guidance to businesses on setting up food delivery and takeaway services in response to COVID-19 restrictions.
Following new Government restrictions placed on public houses, restaurants, cafes and other similar businesses in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, many food businesses are considering diversifying to provide food from their existing menus or new dishes for delivery or takeaway.
This can be a valuable service to the community, especially for key workers working long hours or for those who are self-isolating.
CIEH’s flagship 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.”
