Popular café prosecuted over food safety concerns

A café at a popular Wirral park is making improvements after being prosecuted for falling foul of food hygiene standards.  Representatives of Shanterz, the visitor café, at Tam O'Shanter Urban Farm, pleaded guilty to four food safety offences relating to cleaning, protecting food from contamination, pest control and training of food handlers at a hearing at Wirral Magistrates Court last week. The offences had been highlighted in November 2015, when Environmental Health Officers carried out a routine inspection of the café and found standards of food hygiene were unsatisfactory and required enforcement action. At court the business was fined ₤1,500 for each offence and ordered to pay costs of ₤3,526.42, together with a victim surcharge of ₤150.

Colin Clayton, Wirral Council's Senior Manager in Environmental Services, said:- "Our aim is to support local businesses wherever possible. However, when necessary, we will take legal action in order to protect consumers from the risks associated with food poisoning. The Council wants to ensure that our businesses are healthier, safer and fairer for consumers and the business community alike. I am pleased to note that the most recent visit by Environmental Health Officers confirmed that hygiene standards at Shanterz have improved and that officers' advice was being implemented. We look forward to working with this business in future to help ensure that they are successful and that consumers' health is protected."
