The Isles of Scilly Council has unveiled a new strategy for hygiene inspections of the islands local food businesses to its Councillors this week.

Currently there are two “Category A” food premises which are high risk and will be visited twice a year.

All of the islands other restaurants, cafes, and food outlets will be once a year, as they are in thought to be low risk.

81% of the islands outlets are labelled “Category E” or low risk, this is generally outlets which sell pre-packaged or wrapped food a selection of which will be visited each year.

It is thought that the calls could be made in the evening or weekend due to the islands seasonal business needs.
