FSA awards five-star rating for London restaurant chain Abokado

The Food Standards Agency (FSA UK) has awarded five-star ratings for London-based restaurant chain Abokado’s 23 locations across the city.

The Food Standards Agency (FSA UK) has awarded five-star ratings for London-based restaurant chain Abokado’s 23 locations across the city.

Determined by local authority food safety officers, FSA’s ratings range from zero to five.

The five-star rating determines that the restaurant chain is operating all its locations with the highest possible food hygiene standards.

Abokado operations director Kara Alderin said: “We could not be prouder of this achievement. Food hygiene is of the utmost importance to Abokado and of course, to our customers.

“To have a full house of five stars is a great accolade, in what is a technical business with a complex HACCP system.”

“To have a full house of five stars is a great accolade, in what is a technical business with a complex HACCP system. It’s all down to the dedication of our teams, and precise guidance and support through VG Technical.”

FSA is an independent government department that protects public health and consumers’ wider interests in food. It covers England, Wales and Northern Ireland regions.

Established in 2002, Abokado offers a range of menu items for breakfast and lunch under salads, sushi and wraps, hot pots, snacks and juices categories.

Abokado food safety consultant Vesna Greaves said: “Our company works with many other clients in the food industry and for a business to receive a five-star rating across the board is almost unheard of.

“It requires an enormous amount of work and education across the company.  With Abokado, a sushi and sashimi-based business, we take an innovative approach to food safety and technology, working in partnership with our Primary authority, London Borough of Newham.”
