Food Service Plan
Flintshire County Council’s Cabinet will be asked to approve the Food Service
Plan 2018-19 when it meets on Tuesday, 17 July.
The plan has been produced by officers of the Food Safety and Standards Team
and it sets out how the service will be delivered in this financial year and
also reviews performance during the last financial year.
The Food Service Plan covers food safety (the enforcement of food safety and
food hygiene legislation in all food establishments in the county, food
standards (checking establishments and dealing with complaints) and feed
(visits to feed premises, providing information and dealing with complaints).

Councillor Chris Bithell, said:
“By approving this year’s Food Service Plan, the Cabinet will ensure that the
high level food safety and hygiene already established within the county will
continue. Our Food Safety and Standards team works extremely hard to ensure
that the residents of Flintshire can have confidence in a high level of hygiene
when it comes to food. I must add that the team has had some impressive
achievements over the past year including those listed below. On behalf of the
