Captain Cook Cruises named and shamed
Captain Cook Cruises are the latest in a string of high profile companies to be fined and details made public under the NSW Government's new Name and Shame approach to improving food safety in NSW.
Captain Cook Cruises were issued with three $880 penalty notices; Failure to maintain the food premises to the required standard of cleanliness, Failure to maintain all fixtures, fittings and equipment to the required standard of cleanliness and Failure to maintain food premises, fixtures, fittings, equipment in a good state of repair and working order having regard to their use.
“Just because you’re on the water doesn’t mean you’re out of reach of food safety laws. NSW consumers can be safe in the knowledge that NSW Food Authority Officers have wide ranging powers of investigation and enforcement to help ensure they can eat safely in NSW where ever they are, ” Minister Whan said today.
Other penalty notices were also issued to other Sydney harbour cruise boat operators and are expected to be announced in the coming weeks. The current list of penalty notices and prosecutions can be found at www.foodauthority.nsw.gov.au
