FOR more than a year Ocean Basket in Jeffreys Bay has been serving its customers with excellence, taking pride in serving affordable quality food with a smile.

The family-owned restaurant was recently awarded the much coveted Hygiene Award by Food Consulting Services (FCS), an independent quality control company that evaluates all Ocean Basket restaurants on a three-monthly basis.

The FCS Hygiene Audit or Technical Survey is designed to evaluate the hygiene, sanitation, food safety and facilities in kitchens in the food service industry. The audits are performed for clients in the hotel, gaming, restaurant, and catering industries, and are tailor made to the unique needs of each client.

A microbiological evaluation of surface swabs, hand swabs, food samples and water samples forms part of the audit, and provides scientific evidence as to the food safety, hygiene and sanitation standards in the kitchen.

The FCS Hygiene Audit ensures that a statistically representative number of microbiological samples are evaluated to be able to provide a meaningful microbiological index for the surface swabs, hand swabs, food samples and a composite microbiological index.

The microbiological indices are presented on a graph and tracked over the previous three audits to provide a trend over time.

“Our biggest asset is our staff, who are dedicated, friendly and passionate about our business. We believe in teamwork and the results are evident in the positive feedback we get from our valued customers,” says co-owner Claudia Smit.
