Students from Saudi Arabia learnt about regulating food safety in local businesses during a trip to Daventry District Council.

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

Maria Taylor, community manager at Daventry District Council, 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.”
