Four students from Saudi Arabia have visited Daventry District Council to see how its environmental health officers regulate food safety.

The students are on a visit to the University of Birmingham as part of their studies and the council agreed to help in their education during a visit to the district on Thursday, April 25.

During their visit the students accompanied officers on food safety inspections and also took part in a desk top investigation into alleged food poisoning at a restaurant.

They watched a presentation about the services that the environmental health team provides and how the UK inspection process works.

Maria Taylor, community manager at DDC, said: “We were delighted to welcome the students from Saudi Arabia to Daventry to showcase what our environmental health team does on a day-to-day basis to reduce food borne illness and ensure food for sale is safe to eat.

“The students seemed very interested in how we work and I hope that they found their visit useful and informative.”
