Mariani’s Italian Restaurant located at De Garden Mall Ipoh, recently received its ‘A’ Certificate of Cleanliness from Ipoh City Council (MBI). The certificate was presented by outgoing Ipoh Mayor Dato’ Roshidi Hashim who thanked the owners Datin Wendy Choong and Kim Goo for complying with all the council’s guidelines for clean food outlets.
Ipoh City Council had up till December 2013 approved and awarded 200 ‘A’ Certificates out of a total of 1910 premises. Of this number 59 were given a 20 per cent incentive rebate off their annual license for maintaining their certification for another year.
MBI’s requirement for clean food outlets requires owners to instal a grease trap and to maintain a cleaning schedule in order to keep clean and hygienic premises at all times and covers food storage and work areas to clean toilets in order to qualify for the ‘A’ certification.
