100 Per Cent Compliance For PDH Catering Department

Monday, 29 August 2016
Portland District Health’s meals not only pass the taste test, the kitchen has passed its latest audit with 100 per cent compliance.

PDH has always achieved the annual Food Safety Audit but this year has been an exceptional result with 100 per cent compliance across all areas with no recommendations for improvements.

PDH Director of Corporate Services Ros Jones said food services supervisor Andre Wallace and the catering team deserved credit for the excellent outcome.

The department has always fared well but this is the first audit where there haven’t been any recommendations, Ms Jones said. It's a great result and reflective of the hard work and dedication shown by Andre and his team.

They work in a busy environment with constant deadlines to meet but are always up to the task.

Ms Jones said the meals which are supplied to the hospital, Harbourside Lodge and the Glenelg Shire Meals on Wheels service receive good feedback.

We work closely with our dietitians to make sure the meals are nutritional and we regularly receive positive comments about their taste and preparations, she said.

Ms Jones said auditors from the Department of Health were impressed by the high standards of food safety practices.

It is obvious that serving good safe nutritional meals to patients and residents in your care is of a high priority at Portland District Health,” the audit stated.

Mr Wallace said the team of 23 makes sure meals are nutritious and tasty and delivered on time and prepared in a spotless kitchen.

We have a good team environment and everyone is passionate about working in the industry, he said.

Well done Catering Team.
