As part of the City’s new Scores on Doors program, participating food businesses will display distinctive blue and yellow posters which rate their compliance with food safety standards, including food temperature control, food prepared in advance of service, food handler hygiene, cleaning, sanitisation and pest control.

Mayor Tracey Roberts said the City of Wanneroo was proud of the initiative which would allow people to make an informed choice about where to eat or shop for food.

“The City’s health officers regularly inspect our local food businesses and rate their compliance with food safety standards,” said Mayor Roberts.

“As part of the new Scores on Doors program, this information will now be readily available to customers with posters prominently displayed in the business’ door or window.

“We are fortunate to enjoy a fantastic range of quality restaurants within our City and I encourage you to support the local businesses that are taking part in the program and who will be proudly displaying their compliance posters.”

Mayor Roberts today met with the owners of four local food businesses who are participating in the Scores on Doors food hygiene program:

  • Hal Vo and Dep Duong from Darch Fish and Chips in Madeley
  • Amir Budroodin from Mughal Foods in Wangara
  • Sarah Kermode and Ian Bickle from Bib’s Tuck Shop in Yanchep
  • Ron Chilton from Christo’s Lunch Bar in Landsdale.

Sarah Kermode of Bib’s Tuck Shop in Yanchep said she and Ian Bickle were honoured and privileged to be recognised by the City for their hard work.

“We have a big love and passion for the hospitality sector and it is great to have a public forum to show the hard work that happens after the doors shut,” Ms Kermode said.

“The average customer doesn’t realise how much work goes into keeping the business at a high standard so we are very proud to have received the 5 star rating.”
